TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Elijah MacNamee hit a three-run homer to left field with two outs in the ninth, and Mississippi State beat Florida State 3-2 on Saturday to eliminate the No. 7 national seed from the NCAA Tournament's Tallahassee Regional.


Jake Mangum and Hunter Stovall got on via walks before MacNamee hit a 1-2 pitch from Florida State's Drew Parrish off the scoreboard. Parrish had blanked the Bulldogs for the first eight innings but came out for the ninth despite a 2½-hour rain delay after the eighth.

Parrish, a sophomore left-hander who fell to 5-1, allowed four hits, struck out eight and walked two in 133 pitches, with 93 being strikes.

Mississippi State (32-26) will face the Oklahoma-Samford loser on Sunday. The Seminoles finish the season 43-19.

Nick Derr got Florida State's first run in the third when he doubled, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a throwing error by Mississippi State catcher Marshall Gilbert. The Seminoles added a run in the fifth when Rhett Aplin's single drove in J.C. Flowers.

Riley Self (4-0) got the win with three shutout innings.
