Dawgs score late to win CWS opener

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison Central graduate Wes Rea ripped a two-run double in the eighth inning, and Gulfport High graduate Jonathan Holder came in relief in the bottom of that frame and shut door.  That combination propelled Mississippi State to a 5-4 victory over the third seed Oregon State in the opening game of the 2013 College World Series.

Rea's double in the right center field gap came with one out.  It was his second double of the game.

Holder entered the game in the bottom of the eighth with two on and one out.  He got his first batter to pop out to right.  And he struck out batter number two.

In the bottom of the ninth, Holder gave up a leadoff single.  And then, he got the next Beaver to strikeout.  The Mississippi State closer walked Oregon State's hottest hitter, putting runners on first and second with just one out.  A Holder curveball on a two-two pitch got him his third strikeout, and the second out of the ninth. 

The final out scared everybody.  Danny Hayes ripped a shot to right.  But, it was caught just in front of the TD Ameritrade Field right field wall.  

It was Holder's 19th save of the season.  It was Mississippi State's first win at the College World Series since 1998.
