State scores late to stay undefeated
STARKVILLE, Miss., - Runs were at a premium as snow flurries fell at Dudy Noble Field Saturday afternoon.
Mississippi State managed three runs in its final two at bats to best St. Joseph's 4-1 as the fifth-ranked Bulldogs remained undefeated at 13-0.
MSU strung together eight hits in the inclement weather led by centerfielder C.T. Bradford's 3-for-4 performance with three singles.
Shortstop Adam Frazier was also 2-for-4 with a pair of singles for the Diamond Dogs.
"C.T. had a great day and Adam Frazier hit balls hard," said MSU skipper John Cohen. "Overall it was a good day. I really believe this about St. Joe's too, we're really not playing each other. You're competing against the elements and you're just trying to find a way to keep yourself warm enough to execute certain things in the game."
Ross Mitchell improved to 4-0 out of the bullpen on the year. Ross Mitchell took over in the sixth inning for starter Evan Mitchell and tossed three shutout frames allowing only one hit with three strikeouts and a walk.
