OMAHA, June 18 (UPI) -- Trey Porter delivered a go-ahead, two-run single in the eighth inning Monday, carrying Mississippi State over Indiana 5-4 in the College World Series.

The Bulldogs were trailing 3-2 in the eighth when they struck for three runs off Hoosiers reliever Ryan Halstead.

Henderson's one-out single sent Brett Pirtle (3-for-5) home with the equalizer and Porter later added a two-out hit, chasing home Henderson and Wes Rea with the key tallies.

Chad Girodo notched the victory, tossing 5 2/3 innings of one-run relief, as the Bulldogs advanced to play the winner of Wednesday's elimination game between Indiana and Oregon State.

Sam Travis, Scott Donley and Casey Smith each knocked in a run for Indiana.
