LAFAYETTE - Pinch-hitter Holt Perdzock hit a two-run double in the ninth inning and Mississippi ended a 42-year College World Series drought by punching its ticket to Omaha with a 10-4 win over Louisiana-Lafayette in the deciding game of the Lafayette Super Regional on Monday night.

A throwing error on Perdzock's double allowed another run to score and J.B. Woodman's sacrifice fly scored Perdzock to complete the Rebels' four-run rally.

Scott Weathersby (3-1) pitched two scoreless innings for Mississippi (46-19) and Josh Laxer picked up his sixth save, allowing only an unearned run in 3 1-3 innings.

Austin Anderson and Sikes Orvis homered in the Rebels' three-run fourth.

ULL (58-10) lost back-to-back games for the first time all season. Ragin' Cajuns starter Cody Boutte (9-1) went four innings, giving up four runs on five hits. ULL pitchers issued eight walks and hit three batters.

Ole Miss will play Virginia on Sunday in its first game of the College World Series.
