It took the Mississippi State offense eight innings to wake up, but that still wasn't good enough.
The No. 2 Bulldogs scored two runs in the ninth inning but couldn't overcome Western Carolina and lost to the Catamounts 3-2 Friday night at Dudy Noble Field to open the 2014 season.
"I was really proud of the way we fought back, battled and got back into the game," MSU head coach John Cohen said. "Certainly our kids competed and we're having a different conversation right now if a couple of balls fall late in the ballgame."
It was the first opening day loss for State since the 2003 season.
