FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Ryan Wrobleski, Andrew Benefield and River Town each had a multi-run homer and Dallas Baptist rallied from a five-run deficit to beat Oregon State 8-5 in the Fort Worth Regional.

Wrobleski finished 7 for 10 in the regional tournament with two homers, including a two-run blast in the sixth to start the scoring for DBU.

Benefield added a go-ahead grand slam in the seventh and Town hit a two-run homer in the eighth. Zane Russell picked up his first win of the season by pitching 4 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.
