WAIT COLUMN: Baseball race should be fun in the stretch
The final four weekends of the Southeastern Conference baseball season promises to be fun.
Last season saw Vanderbilt and LSU run away with both the SEC East and West, respectively, with the Commodores winning the entire league.
After the first six weekends, one thing is for sure, there is no clear leader. Now Alabama and Florida both sit at 12-6 and lead the West and East, respectively, but they are just two games ahead of the teams in second place.
Mississippi State played its way right back into the conversation in the Western Division. The Bulldogs swept Missouri on the road, a really big series win for them. The Sunday win was especially impressive, coming from behind and winning it 9-7 in 11 innings. The Bulldogs found themselves down 7-3 midway through the ballgame, but battled back and scored two runs in the ninth to tie it. They took the lead with Reid Humphreys' two-run single in top of the 11th inning. Ben Bracewell was impressive on the mound in a relief appearance and stifled the Tiger bats late in that ballgame.
