The Razorbacks called on Zack Morris after Ole Miss filled base without an out at the bottom of the ninth inning, and the junior left-hander laid the threat to let the Razorback hold on for a 3-2 win in the College World Series on Wednesday night.
The Hogs (46-20) forced a second bracket final against Ole Miss (39-23) on Thursday, with the winner advancing to take on Oklahoma in the best-of-three championship round starting Saturday.
Over the course of eight innings, Arkansas covered all fouls that had resulted in 64 runs in his first seven NCAA Tournament games. Kemp Alderman, who hit homers to a draw in the second inning, was the only Ole Miss runner to advance past first base to that point.
The Rebels loaded base in the ninth after Brady Tygart went closer to hit two straight hitters.
Morris, who gave up two rounds and was pulled out after two-thirds of the innings in the Hogs’ 13-5 loss to Ole Miss on Monday, hit Hayden Leatherwood’s bat and sent TJ McCants flying before Justin Bench’s infield. single makes it a one way game. Morris then sent Jacob Gonzalez out to end the match.
