Brooms are normally used for cleaning duty.
On Sunday, they took on a different meaning for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs used the objects as symbols for a sweep of Marshall, which was culminated with a 9-1 victory in game three of the series.
â€śSundays are our tough days,â€ť MSU shortstop Kayla Winkfield said. â€śBefore the game, our coaches say Sundays are about toughness. We are coming back from Auburn and from these midweek wins. We are just coming together in all areas and once we continue to put all this together we are going to be a team to be reckoned with.â€ť
After pitching game one of the series, Alison Owen returned to the circle for the Bulldogs where she provided a complete game win, allowing one run with just two hits and seven strikeouts, improving her season record to 13-7. Owen's seven strikeouts on Sunday brought her career total to 411 and moving her to No. 2 on school's all-time list.
