Trailing by three and down to its final three outs, Mount Olive College avoided tumbling into the losers' bracket in the Division II College World Series.
The No. 1-ranked Trojans (55-6 overall) turned back Ouachita (Ark.) Baptist 6-5 on Monday afternoon. The teams survived three lengthy weather delays to complete a suspended contest that started about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Mount Olive opposes either two-time defending national champion Tampa (Fla.) or Ashland on Tuesday.
