Bulldogs shut down by Wildcats

March 8, 2014

The Mississippi State Bulldogs knew that with the start of Southeastern Conference play, they would see a combination of good hitting and excellent pitching.
Both areas were on display on Friday night by the Kentucky Wildcats.
Kentucky pitcher Kelsey Nunley hurled a no-hitter, while Ansley Smith and Ginny Carroll hit the softball out of the park in a 4-0 victory over MSU.
Nunley only allowed four walks and struck out six in going the full seven innings for the Wildcats.
It has almost been a year since the last no-hitter thrown against the Bulldogs. Florida's Hannah Rogers did the trick on April 5, 2013.
"She put together a great game plan, executed it and that's what it's all about," MSU softball coach Vann Stuedeman said. "She was hitting her spots really well, in and out and change up. You tip your hat. She threw a great game and congratulations on the no-hitter.
"We talk about having quality at-bats. We want to have 54 percent quality at-bats so obviously we were shy of that. She was effective."
