CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Shea McFeely homered on the first pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving Oregon State a 4-3 win over Ohio State on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Corvallis Regional.

The Pacific-10 champion Beavers (42-9) play St. John's (40-16) on Saturday. The Red Storm defeated Virginia 5-3 earlier Friday.

The Beavers, who last made the postseason in 1986, were the No. 8 seed among the 64 teams nationwide that advanced to the postseason.

McFeely's game-winning home run came off Rory Meister (8-2).

Oregon State's Kevin Gunderson (6-2) pitched 12/3 scoreless innings for the win. Starter Dallas Buck, who was 11-1 with a 1.93 ERA to lead the Pac-10 during the regular season, struggled at times with his control but allowed only three runs on four hits over 71/3 innings.

Mitch Canham hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Mike Madsen to give the Beavers the lead.

The Buckeyes (39-19) tied it at 2-2 in the sixth on Ronnie Bourquin's RBI grounder and took the lead on Paul Farinacci's RBI infield bouncer.

Jacoby Ellsbury scored on Cole Gillespie's single to right with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth to tie it at 3.

Virginia (41-19) will play Ohio State in the first elimination game today.

Arkansas 9, Miami (Ohio) 5

AUSTIN, Texas -- Charley Boyce allowed just one run through eight innings before Miami (Ohio) scored four in the ninth, but Arkansas held on to open the Austin regional.

Clint Arnold and Clay Goodwin each had two RBIs for Arkansas (38-20), which will play Texas today. The Longhorns routed Quinnipiac 20-8 Friday night.

Miami (44-17) plays Quinnipiac in today's first elimination game.

Boyce lasted until the ninth, when he faced six batters and was pulled after Miami loaded the bases and scored three runs. He allowed 12 hits and struck out five.

Paul Frietch hit a solo homer for Miami. Graham Taylor threw 61/3 innings, allowing six runs on 11 hits.
