John Cohen wasn't happy with the performance of his offense in a loss on Wednesday.
The Mississippi State head coach said his team was taking "softball swings" and trying to do too much at the plate.
The Bulldogs took what he had to say to heart.
No. 2 MSU pounded out 10 hits in a 6-2 victory over the Holy Cross Crusaders on Friday at Dudy Noble Field.
State had just seven hits and left 12 men on base in the loss to Memphis on Wednesday.
The Bulldogs (3-2) left 11 men on base against the Crusaders, but walked seven times and drove in runs when they needed to.
"It's a little bit of a slow start since the season started but it's only been a week," MSU sophomore outfielder Jacob Robson said, who was walked three times and had a hit to reach base every at-bat. "We have a bunch of great players and we're doing all we can. We're sticking to our tools and our identity."
