OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Ryan Rolison had a career-high 13 strikeouts in seven innings and Ole Miss got two-run homers from Cole Zabowski and Tyler Keenan to beat Saint Louis 9-2 on Saturday night in the NCAA Oxford Regional.

The Rebels (47-15), the No. 4 national seed, fell behind 2-0 early in their regional opener that came a day later than scheduled because of flooding rains Friday.

Rolison (10-4), a sophomore lefty, allowed four hits, walked three and hit two other batters.

Zabowski hit a tying homer, his 10th, in a six-run second inning that put Ole Miss ahead to stay. An inning later, Keenan hit his ninth homer to make it 8-2.

Billikens starter Miller Hogan (10-4) allowed nine runs, three of them unearned, in three innings.

Nick Reeser had two hits, including an RBI double that put Saint Louis (38-19) up 1-0 in the first inning.
