OXFORD – Trailing by one after three innings, the No. 5 Mississippi State Bulldogs scored nine runs in the fourth on their way to an 11-5 victory and a Southeastern Conference series sweep of No. 11 Ole Miss at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field on Sunday.
The series sweep is the third in Southeastern Conference play this season for the Bulldogs and first league sweep on the road since taking all three games against the Rebels during the 2017 season in Oxford. In the history of the series, it is the first time that Mississippi State (42-10, 18-9 SEC) has swept back-to-back three-game series at Ole Miss (32-20, 15-12 SEC).
In 2019, MSU has swept Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss in conference play, with Georgia and Ole Miss each being ranked at the time of the meetings.
