The Ole Miss Rebels became the first team to hit back-to-back-to-back home runs in the Men’s College World Series since the LSU Tigers did so in 1998.

Ole Miss crushed back-to-back-back jacks in the eighth inning of Saturday night’s 10-3 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners in Game 1 of the MCWS Finals (a best-of-three series).

First, TJ McCants — in his first plate appearance of the game — went deep in the always tough lefty-lefty matchup. Nice catch in the bullpen by Ole Miss reliever Josh Mallitz too.

That was followed two pitches later by another lefty-lefty home run. Calvin Harris cranked a 430-foot blast to make it back-to-back homers for the Rebels.

And then Justin Bench made it back-to-back-to-back with this dinger over the left-center field wall:

Ole Miss also impressed with the pitching and defense. Jack Dougherty took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, with some help from some stellar Rebels defense.

The Rebels are searching for their first baseball national title in school history, and they’re just one win away.
