New Bern's Williams Comes Up Clutch; N.C. State To Omaha

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State's Tarran Senay scored on a double by Brett Williams in the top of the 17th inning on Sunday night, rallying the Wolfpack to a 5-4 victory over Rice in the longest super regional game in NCAA history.

Senay drove in the run that tied the game in the ninth inning at the Raleigh Super Regional and set the stage for N.C. State (49-14) to make its first College World Series appearance since 1968.

Rice (44-20) tied a season-high with three home runs. Two were solo shots by Christian Stringer.

N.C. State starter Logan Jernigan held Rice to two hits over five innings including Stringer's first home run.

Owls' starter Jordan Stephens yielded one earned run in 6 1-3 innings, and the Wolfpack left 15 runners on base.
