LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Colby Bortles broke open the game with a two-run single in Mississippi's three-run eighth inning as the Rebels beat Louisiana-Lafayette 5-2 on Sunday night to tie their super regional series.
The teams will play a deciding Game 3 on Monday night.
Ole Miss scored the go-ahead run when center fielder Seth Harrison dropped a flyball hit by Will Allen. Sikes Orvis then singled to load the bases, setting it up for Bortles -- the younger brother of Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.
Preston Overbey hit a solo home run in the seventh inning to put the Rebels (45-19) up 2-1. But Blake Trahan answered for the Ragin' Cajuns (58-9) with an RBI single in the eighth, scoring Mike Strentz from second.
Christian Trent (9-0) went seven innings for the win, while Carson Baranik (11-1) took the loss.
