By The Associated Press

HOOVER, Ala. — Brian Anderson scored on a wild pitch in the 10th inning to give Arkansas a 2-1 victory over Ole Miss in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament on Wednesday.

Anderson started the Razorbacks’ 10th inning rally with a one-out, ground-rule double. Dominic Ficociello followed with a single that moved Anderson to third and then Tyler Spoon was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Ole Miss pitcher Matt Denny struck out Jacob Mahan for the second out but then threw a wild pitch on his first offering to Eric Fisher, which scored Anderson and ended the game.

Jalen Beeks (6-1) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win for Arkansas. Aaron Greenwood (3-5) took the loss for the Rebels (37-21), who fall into the loser’s bracket. Ole Miss will play tomorrow morning at 9:30 against Alabama.

Arkansas (36-19) outhit Ole Miss 11-6. Matt Vinson led the Razorbacks with three hits.
