AUSTIN -- Matt Camp bunted home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning to cap North Carolina State's 6-5 come-from-behind victory over Texas-Arlington in the Austin Regional on Saturday.

The Wolfpack (39-22) trailed the elimination game 5-3 after six innings but pulled even on Camp's two-out RBI single in the eighth.

Marcus Jones, who entered the game as a pinch-runner two innings earlier, started N.C. State's 10th with a single, went to second base on a sacrifice bunt and moved to third on a flyout. He scored when Camp dropped a bunt single toward third base.

Texas-Arlington (29-36) loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the ninth, but N.C. State's Joel Brookens came out of the bullpen to get David McLeod to ground into a double play.

Brookens (1-1) pitched 1 2/3 hitless innings, and the Wolfpack bullpen shut out Texas-Arlington on four hits over the final 5 2/3 innings. Brandon Endsley (1-4) took the loss for the Mavericks, allowing a hit and a run over 1 1/3 innings.

Texas-Arlington scored four runs to take a 5-3 lead in the fifth, keyed by Collin Garner's three-run double. Garner and Kyle Rudy had three hits apiece for the Mavericks.

Brian Aragon went 4-for-4 with two RBIs for N.C. State, which will face Saturday's loser between Texas and Stanford in another elimination game Sunday.
