Stephanie Becker has been striking out batters ever since she stepped onto the Mississippi State campus.
On Saturday, Becker etched her name into the MSU record book.
The senior left hander started the game with a strikeout of R.T. Cantillo for her 407th career punch out and set a new MSU career strikeout record in the process.
"It's great," Becker said. "Strikeouts are just a bonus. We pitchers work on throwing quality pitches and we have full faith in our fielders to get the job done. Strikeouts are just an extra bonus when they happen."
The Bulldogs went on to to beat the Rebels 6-5 to clinch the three-game Southeastern Conference series at the MSU softball stadium.
