LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Myles Gentry pitched four perfect innings of relief and Mississippi State made a four-run second inning stand up in a 5-2 victory over San Diego State on Friday in a first-round NCAA tournament game.

Gentry retired the 12 batters he faced on only 34 pitches to earn his fourth save for Mississippi State (38-22), last season's national runner-up.

Starter Trevor Fitts (5-3) went five innings for the win.

SDSU (42-20) struck first with two runs in the top of the second, but Jake Vickerson's bases-loaded triple to the wall in right put MSU up 4-2 in the bottom of the inning.

All four of Mississippi State's runs in the second inning came after a two-out error by shortstop Evan Potter on a flip to second base. The Bulldogs added another run on Alex Detz's two-out single in the fifth.

Aztecs starter Mark Seyler (8-6) was chased after 4 2-3 innings.
