The Mississippi State Bulldogs struck early Wednesday night.
The No. 14 Bulldogs collected five hits and three runs, all in the first three innings, in a 3-0 victory over South Alabama at Dudy Noble Field.
MSU only had three base runners the rest of the game.
"You look at it and you say, 'hey we got five hits,'" MSU head coach John Cohen said. "But at the same time, I'm looking up and down our lineup and I thought we smoked some balls right at some people."
