UCLA answered in the second inning with the bases load to go up 2-1.

The Rebels loaded the bases with two outs, as senior Josh Roenicke came in from center field to relieve Huff. Cozart then nailed a two-run single through the left side to cut the UCLA lead to 5-4. Brashear followed with a line drive to right field that was misplayed by senior Chris Jensen to allow Alex Presley to score from second and Brashear from first, giving Ole Miss the 6-5 advantage.

Ole Miss junior Garrett White pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to close the game and earn his second save of the season.
