Mississippi State Makes it Four in a Row, Captures the Governor’s Cup in 8-1 Win Over Ole Miss

Mississippi State needed to put last weekend’s miserable performance at Arkansas far behind them, and the opportunity for a midweek clash with their old rivals from Oxford gave the Bulldogs just what they needed. State took down Ole Miss 8-1 in one of the most complete games of this season. Peyton Plumlee gave MSU its first quality midweek start in months, and the Bulldog bullpen combined for 5 scoreless innings behind him. State touched Rebel pitching for 7 hits, and took advantage of two errors for the final tally. State improves to 33-9 overall, an incredible 23-1 in non-conference play. Here’s some video from postgame as the Bulldogs celebrated another win over their archrivals.

We talked to two Bulldog players, first the winning pitcher, left hander Trysten Barlow, who bounced back nicely from his rough outing at Arkansas on Saturday.

We also spoke to sophomore second baseman Justin Foscue, who was named MVP of the game.

Finally, Coach Chris Lemonis discusseed what this game meant for his team going into a crucial weekend series with Georgia.

Mississippi State will back at home this week for a three game with the SEC leaders, the Georgia Bulldogs. Ethan Small and JT Ginn are scheduled to start Games 1 and 2, and Sunday’s starter will be announced later, it could likely be Plumlee again depending on how he feels on game day. We’ll discuss this game in great detail on the Thunder & Lightning Podcast, and on SportsTalk Mississippi.
