Coach John Cohen hasn't had the best of luck against Vanderbilt since taking over the Mississippi State baseball program.
Entering Friday night's game, the Bulldogs were 4-13 against the Commodores and hadn't scored in the double digits in those 17 games.
It was a different story Friday.
The No. 24 Bulldogs scored early and often as they beat the No. 3 Commodores 17-2 at Dudy Noble Field to open a three-game Southeastern Conference weekend series.
"Scores like this on Friday nights don't happen a lot in the Southeastern Conference," Cohen said. "I know for sure that Vanderbilt is a very good club and they will be different (today)."
The 17 runs scored by MSU is the most against the Commodores since MSU scored 25 in a 1997 game. It is the most in a SEC game for the Bulldogs since scoring 17 in a loss to Kentucky in 2009. 
State scored in all but two innings and had runners on in every frame. 
MSU (16-8, 3-1) pounded out 14 hits and took advantage of five Vanderbilt (19-4, 2-2) errors.
