OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Thomas Dillard's two-RBI double in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted Ole Miss to a 5-4 comeback victory over Texas A&M in the opening game of their weekend series on Thursday night.

The Rebels trailed 3-0 until the seventh inning, when Carl Gindl scored on a wild pitch.

Ole Miss (28-15 overall, 11-8 SEC) tied the game in the eighth thanks to an A&M throwing error and a sacrifice fly by Kevin Graham.

The Aggies (30-13-1, 11-7-1) would retake the lead in the top of the eleventh on a wild pitch, but two base hits from the Rebels and a walk in the bottom of the frame set the stage for Dillard's heroics.

Ole Miss will try to clinch the series when the two teams meet again Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Swayze Field.
