N.C. State Storms Back to Eliminate Vanderbilt from NCAA Tournament

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Tarran Senay hit a three-run homer in the eighth and a two-run single in the ninth that helped North Carolina State rally to beat Vanderbilt 9-7 for the Raleigh Regional championship Monday night.

Senay's second hit brought in the go-ahead run as the top-seeded Wolfpack (43-18) rallied from a 7-3 deficit to reach the super regionals for the first time since 2008.

N.C. State reliever Ryan Wilkins (5-2) earned the win by holding Vanderbilt to three hits in 4 2-3 scoreless innings.

It was a reversal from the first two meetings between the teams in the regional. Vanderbilt rallied from a five-run deficit for a 9-8 win on a walk-off single Saturday, then rallied from a 5-1 deficit in Sunday's game before falling 6-5.

N.C. State will face No. 1 national seed Florida in the super regionals.

Connor Castellano drove in three runs for the second-seeded Commodores (35-28).
