Mississippi State baseball

Mississippi State’s Tanner Allen, left, had a four-hit night against coach Daron Schoenrock’s Memphis team on Wednesday night.

A nightmare of a first inning could have folded most teams this season, but Mississippi State has seen bad midweek starts this year and overcome them along the way.

MSU fell behind 7-0 before it even got to bat against Memphis and head coach Chris Lemonis got his team together in the dugout. The No. 5 Bulldogs were going to have to battle, and it’s exactly what they did.

A little bit at a time, MSU got back into the game, eventually got it tied at 7-7, took an 8-7 lead, lost it, but ended up winning a 10-9 decision at Dudy Noble Field.
