FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Vincent Citro’s two-out RBI single in the 10th inning gave Siena a 9-8 victory over Dallas Baptist on Saturday in an elimination game in the Fort Worth regional.

The Saints (27-32) earned their first NCAA tournament win in school history after trailing 7-0 in the second inning. They were one of three teams to make a regional appearance with a losing record.

Siena will face Sam Houston State, which lost 3-2 to TCU in 22 innings, in another elimination game on Sunday.

Senior Neil Fryer (4-4) pitched the final nine innings in relief for the Saints, throwing 129 pitches. Brandon Koch (8-1) worked three innings and took the loss for the Patriots. He entered the game with a 0.46 ERA.

The Saints, a day after striking out 17 times and walking once in an 11-inning loss to host TCU, drew 16 walks and struck out five times.
