Mississippi State took the lead on Wes Rea's two-run double in the eighth inning and closer Jonathan Holder turned back two Oregon State threats as the Bulldogs beat the Beavers 5-4 Saturday afternoon in the opening game of the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.

The Bulldogs (49-18) advanced to a Monday game against Indiana or Louisville. The Beavers (50-12), the No. 3 national seed, are one loss away from elimination.

Hunter Renfroe's comebacker off Matt Boyd (10-4) put runners on first and second in the eighth. Rea then sent the go-ahead double into the right-center gap.

Holder got out of a jam after Oregon State put two runners on base in the eighth. The Beavers had two runners on in the ninth when Danny Hayes drove a ball to right that Renfroe caught on the warning track to end the game, giving Holder his 19th save. Ross Mitchell (13-0) got the win.
