OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Sikes Orvis hit a run-scoring triple in the top of the 10th inning to push Mississippi past Washington for a 3-2 victory in the championship game of the NCAA tournament's Oxford Regional.

Ole Miss (44-18) will either travel to Louisiana-Lafayette or host Mississippi State in the Super Regional round this weekend.

Washington (41-17-1) threw five pitchers in the game. Alex Nesbitt (0-1) took the loss.

Ole Miss scored first when freshman Colby Bortles hit a solo homer in the second. Washington responded with a run on Branden Berry's single in the third and then pulled ahead 2-1 on Brian Wolfe's sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Bortles doubled home a run in the sixth to tie the game 2-2.

Scott Weathersby (2-1) earned the win for Ole Miss.
