Dodgers 29th-round draft pick, left-hander Christian Trent, pitched eight scoreless innings to help Ole Miss to a 2-1 victory over Texas Tech in an elimination game on Tuesday afternoon in the College World Series.
Trent allowed six hits and a walk in his eight scoreless innings, and struck out six. He left with a 1-0 lead but the Red Raiders scored a run in the top of the ninth before Ole Miss won on a walk-off single in the bottom of the inning.
Trent, a redshirt sophomore, is 9-0 with a 2.05 ERA in 17 starts this season, with 86 strikeouts and 20 walks in 110 innings.
Hunter Redman, the catcher for Texas Tech, was 0-for-3 on Tuesday and 0-for-6 with a walk in his two College World Series games. The junior Redman was drafted by the Dodgers in the eighth round and now that his season is over he can sign whatever below-slot deal the .242/.285/.268 hitter likely agreed to long ago.
Ole Miss plays another elimination game on Thursday, playing the loser of tonight's TCU-Virginia matchup.
The Dodgers have one other player still alive in the College World Series. UC Irvine closer Sam Moore, picked in the 40th round, pitched the ninth inning while trailing on Monday. Moore faced four batters and retired two, including one strikeout. He walked one, hit another and allowed three stolen bases, but no runs.
UC Irvine plays Texas in an elimination game on Wednesday night at 5 p.m. PT on ESPN.
