Fair or foul? Ole Miss narrowly avoids giving up go-ahead grand slam vs. Southern Miss
Dylan DeLucia is through 5 shutout innings with Ole Miss taking a commanding lead vs. Southern Miss in the top of the 6th inning of the opening game of the Hattiesburg Super Regional. The Rebels responded with a big inning after a close call that had a huge impact on the game.
In the bottom of the 5th inning, DeLucia faced a bases-loaded jam with Reece Ewing at the plate for Southern Miss. Ewing drilled a pitch down the right-field line and toward the foul pole.
Ewing reacted as he thought the hit went fair for a go-ahead grand slam. The ruling on the field was a foul ball and the call eventually went to review.
After review, the foul call was upheld. Ewing went on to strike out to end the inning as DeLucia got out of the jam.
