HOOVER, Ala. â€“ The Mississippi State Bulldogs lived on the edge in Tuesday's opener of the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
The Bulldogs dominated their second game.
No. 5 seed MSU demolished No. 4 seed South Carolina 12-0 in seven innings at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium.
The Bulldogs (37-20) will face No. 9 seed Kentucky in tonight's last game in a winner's bracket game. The winner of that game will go immediately to Saturday's single-elimination semifinal.
MSU has been run-ruled in the SEC Tournament, but this was the first time that it did the run-ruling.Â
The Bulldogs brought the offense with 14 hits and scored all their runs in the second, third and fourth.Â
â€śWe swung the bats well (Wednesday night),â€ť MSU head coach John Cohen said. â€śSouth Carolina is really good. They will come back out and compete (today). We just had a lot of really good fortune (Wednesday night). I thought we had some really good offensive at-bats and had a good night at the plate.â€ť
