LSU SS Josh Smith's HR wasn't enough in the end for the Tigers to beat Ole Miss.

One of the strangest box scores in a while comes from NCAA baseball, where the Ole Miss Rebels beat the LSU Tigers 19-15 in 10 innings Sunday to earn a road win. The No. 13 Rebels (now 32-17 after the win) were up 10-1 on  the No. 9 Tigers (now 30-18) in the top of the fifth, and led 15-9 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, but LSU promptly plated six runs to force an extra frame. And they did so in pretty stunning fashion, including back-to-back-to-back home runs:

Here’s that game-tying home run, from Tigers’ shortstop and cleanup hitter Josh Smith (whose second-inning error helped the Rebels score four runs there):

Afterwards, Smith said he didn’t fixate on the mistake, and that paved the way for his later success:

But Ole Miss managed to score four runs of their own in the top of the 10th, and then shut down the Tigers for the win. But this was still a memorable game, and one that went four hours and 21 minutes. That, like most of the rest of this box score, isn’t exactly a common occurrence.
