NC State Scores 2 In 9th To Top Rice 4-3

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Jake Fincher's two-out single in the bottom of the ninth capped a rally and lifted N.C. State to a 4-3 victory over Rice on Saturday in Game 1 of the Raleigh Super Regional.

Rice (44-19) had taken a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth, but N.C. State (48-14) tied it when Brett Williams slid under a tag after a bunt by Logan Ratledge. Williams singled to start the inning, stole second, and went to third on an error by pitcher Zech Lemond.

Two batters later, Fincher's single to left scored Jake Armstrong with the winning run.

Christian Stringer had doubled in the go-ahead run for Rice, pulling a ball down the left-field line to score pinch-runner John Williamson. Hunter Kopycinski had three hits, including the one that put Williamson on base.
