The Bulldogs fourth year head coach was not happen with the execution and focus of some of his players during the midweek affair.

"We did not play well tonight and it showed," Cohen said. "We had about four situational things that we did not handle at all.

MSU (17-9) committed a pair of errors in the contest, one of which led to both of the Braves runs which were unearned.

The Diamond Dogs totaled seven hits on the evening and drew nine walks and were hit three times.

Shortstop Adam Frazier reached base in all five at bats after earning four free passes along with a single, two stolen bases and scored twice.
