With the Rebels (39-25) trailing Missouri 6-5 in the bottom of the eighth, Power sent a Kyle Gibson fastball over the wall for a grand slam, as Ole Miss posted a 9-6 come-from-behind win over the Tigers to set up a regional final against top-ranked Miami.
The Rebels must defeat the ‘Canes Sunday afternoon and again on Monday to advance to the super regional round.
Scott Bittle (7-1) secured the win, working the final 4.1 innings and striking out 12, including the side in the ninth inning. The junior allowed two runs on three hits but had a hand in every out. The only out not recorded by K was an unassisted putout by Bittle.
Tim Ferguson led Ole Miss with three hits, while Jordan Henry, Fuller Smith, and Cody Overbeck had two each. Smith had two doubles and scored twice.
Brett Bukvich started for the Rebels and carried a no-hitter into the fifth, but Mizzou put it together quickly with four runs in that inning to run Bukvich. Bittle entered with two on and exited with no more damage done.
Ole Miss plated four of its own in the bottom half to tie it right back up. The Rebels took their first lead with a run in the bottom of the seventh.
The Tigers (39-21) answered and took the advantage back with two runs in the top of the eighth before the Power grand slam ended the scoring.
Ole Miss pitchers struckout 18 Tiger batters.
Mizzou starter Ian Berger worked four-plus innings and received a no-decision after yielding four runs on seven hits.
