TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Brandon Miller scored twice and drove
in another run as Samford eliminated Mississippi State 3-2 in the
NCAA Tallahassee regional on Sunday.
Miller doubled home Phillip Ervin to tie the game 2-2 in the
seventh inning and then scored the winning run on a throwing error
by Mississippi State third baseman Sam Frost. Miller also scored
Samford's first run on a fourth-inning single by Tommy Corbin.
Samford's Joseph Burns (4-1) got the win and C.K. Irby his 10th
save with a scoreless ninth.
Jonathan Holder (2-1) took the loss in relief for Mississippi
State (40-24), which got runners to second and third with one out
in the ninth, but couldn't score.
Samford (41-22) must defeat the tournament's top seed, Florida
State, twice to advance to the NCAA's 16-team Super Regionals. The
host Seminoles (45-15) advanced into Sunday's championship round
with wins over UAB and Samford.
