"He's a very special player and I've coached him for years," said manager Kevin Gaines. "There's a lot of great kids here this week, but I wouldn't trade him for any of them."

With Mississippi leading 4-1 in the sixth and down to their final three outs, Tennessee rallied to tie the score at 4-all at the end of regulation.

Roundtree singled and knocked in Jacob Urmanski. Jacob Williams hit a fly ball to right that was dropped, allowing Eddie McDaniel to score with two outs.

Then Braxton McFarlin knocked in Roundtree to tie the game at 4-all forcing a 7th inning.

Mississippi scored once in the top of the seventh, but Roundtree pitched his way out of a bases-loaded jam.

"Our kids have really battled back and come from behind in every game,"said Gaines. "We're excited. There's six teams left and we're one of them."
