STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Logan Tanner hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh and No. 7 seed Mississippi State rallied from a four-run deficit to beat No. 10 seed Notre Dame 9-8 in Game 1 of the Starkville Super Regional.

Tanner gave the Bulldogs a 9-8 lead and Landon Sims struck out three in two perfect innings for his 10th save of the season.

Mississippi State is a win away from its 12th trip to the College World Series and can clinch the best-of-three series on Sunday.

Zack Prajzner had a three-run home run in the fifth inning that gave Notre Dame a 7-3 lead.
