Ole Miss now one win away from Super Regional

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Christian Trent and Aaron Greenwood combined on a six-hitter to lead Mississippi over Washington 2-1 in the second round of the NCAA tournament's Oxford regional.

Ole Miss (43-18) advanced to the regional championship Monday and will face Washington again after the Huskies defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 4-2 in an elimination game Sunday. Washington will have to beat Ole Miss twice to win the regional.

Trent (9-0) scattered five hits over 6 1-3 innings, and Greenwood earned the fourth save of the season, pitching 2 2-3 scoreless innings.

Ole Miss scored its first run in the fourth inning on J.B. Woodman's double to left field. Auston Bousfield's solo homer in the fifth inning extended the lead to 2-0.

Washington (40-16-1) responded in the seventh inning on Robert Pehl's run-scoring single, but left two others stranded. Jeff Brigham (8-1) took the loss for the Huskies.
