Mississippi State baseball

Mississippi State’s Tanner Allen hits a triple against Ole Miss on Friday night.

State weathered a couple of runs from the Rebels in the first four innings and got a shutdown performance from the bullpen along with some key hits on the way to a 5-2 victory to start the series. The win was the 15th in the last 17 games against the rival, but most importantly it set the Bulldogs up for success the rest of the weekend.
