TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Mississippi State used a solo home run to claim a victory on Friday night.
Two Alabama solo home runs doomed the Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon.
The No. 22 Crimson Tide did that trick and beat the No. 16 Bulldogs 2-1in the regular season finale to salvage a game.
The Bulldogs still claimed the series and finished the regular season with a 35-20 overall record and a 18-12 mark in Southeastern Conference play. They finished third in the SEC West and tied with South Carolina for fourth overall. The Bulldogs will be the No. 5 seed in this week's SEC Tournament at the Hoover Met and will play No. 12 seed Georgia in a single-elimination game Tuesday night.
"I'm really proud of our kids," MSU head coach John Cohen said. "We go 11-4 in the second half. 
"We desperately wanted to win this game, but it wasn't in the cards for us."
