Demarcus Henderson and Wes Rea both had RBI singles in the ninth inning to lift Mississippi State to a 5-3 win over South Carolina Wednesday night in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

 

The Bulldogs (42-16) loaded the bases with one out before Henderson and Rea drove in runs on consecutive at-bats for the second time in the game. Mississippi State had beaten Missouri 2-1 in 17 innings Tuesday night, matching the longest game in SEC tournament history.

 

Reliever Myles Gentry (4-0) limited the Gamecocks (39-17) to a one-out single in the bottom of the ninth. Gentry pitched 5-2/3 scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out eight.

 

Rea was 3 for 4 while Henderson drove in three runs.

 

Mississippi State led 3-0 before South Carolina tied it up in the fourth. Max Schrock drew a bases loaded walk and Brison Celek followed with a two-run single.
