The Mississippi State Bulldogs were looking for something good to happen during the first weekend in April after losing the first three Southeastern Conference series of the season.
It surely happened.

It was a 3-for-3 effort for the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Friday afternoon.

Jake Vickerson, Gavin Collins and Wes Rea did the trick as the Bulldogs had 14 hits as a team.
Some teams might consider it a bad thing to be playing a three-game series away from home on a holiday weekend.
Don't count the Mississippi State softball squad as one of those.

It was a complete performance from the Mississippi State baseball team on Thursday night.

Cody Brown robbed a home run to seal the victory in the top of the ninth.
It's been quite a two weeks for Mississippi State softball pitcher Alexis Silkwood.
In that time span, Silkwood had pitched a no-hitter against Southern Mississippi, a two-hitter against Lipscomb and beaten Florida, the No. 2 team in the country.
She has accomplished all of that for the Bulldogs despite being 5-foot-4 and not a very imposing figure in the circle.
After three weeks of spring practices, Mississippi State finally gets to change the pace a little bit.
The Bulldogs participate in their first spring scrimmage Friday at Davis Wade Stadium. It will begin at 10:15 a.m. and is open to the public.
The first week didn't feature any pads, but the players went with pads all of last week and in the two practices this week.
