If you do research in college and get a first author publication, will it help during the match process.

It'll help but it will lack the many benefits from doing research during medical school, those being 1) immediacy 2) relevance to field of interest 3) getting to know faculty for 3a) improved letters of rec 3b) possible phone calls on your behalf.
