AUBURN, Ala. — Taylor Hashman’s three-run homer with two outs in the top of the 10th inning lifted Ole Miss to a 10-7 victory over Auburn in an elimination game of the Southeastern Conference tournament Friday night.
Zach Miller drew a one-out walk to chase pitcher Sean Ray. Bradley Hendrix set down Matt Smith, but then Matt Snyder singled to bring up Hashman. He delivered a shot to centerfield for his ninth home run of the season.
Now, the Rebels (38-21) will have to beat LSU twice on Saturday to make the championship game with less than 13 hours between games.
Ole Miss faces LSU at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
Brett Huber overcame two walks with a pair of strikeouts and a groundout in the bottom of the inning.
Hashman and Alex Yarbrough both had three hits for Ole Miss, which capitalized on five Auburn errors.
Hunter Morris had a three-run homer for Auburn (40-19) to tie it at 7-all in the seventh.
