Pinch-hitter Elliott Barzilli had an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning after TCU rallied from a late seven-run deficit in a 9-8 win over North Carolina State on Monday night to advance to the NCAA super regionals.

Evan Williams led off the 10th for TCU (47-12) with a pinch-hit single, advanced on an errant pickoff attempt by Curt Britt (3-1) and Jeremie Fagnan’s sacrifice bunt before Barzilli’s clean grounder through the right side of the infield.

N.C. State (36-23) had an 8-1 lead in the eighth after Jake Fincher had a two-run single off TCU closer Riley Ferrell, a likely high pick in next week’s amateur baseball draft, and two more runs scored on wild pitches by reliever Preston Guillory.

TCU scored six unearned runs in the bottom half, including runs on a bases-loaded walk, a balk and a passed ball, after second baseman Ryne Willard’s error to start the eighth.
