The Mississippi State Bulldogs found a way to get on base all night long.
MSU just couldn't push those base runners across.
The No. 21 Bulldogs totaled 10 hits, but left nine men on base in a 6-1 loss to in-state rival No. 17 Ole Miss Friday night in the opening game of a three-game Southeastern Conference series.Â The game was played in front of 13,224, which was the seventh largest on-campus crowd in NCAA history and largest Friday night crowd in the history of Dudy Noble Field.
"We're struggling to score runs and part of it is pretty bad fortune," MSU head coach John Cohen said. "We're putting ourselves in a good position, we're just not finding holes."
The Bulldogs (21-14, 6-7) have lost four of the first five games to start Southeastern Conference series this season. They have come back to win three of the first four.Â
