SMITH COLUMN: Bulldogs have shown a flare for dramatic
Throughout the season, the Mississippi State Bulldogs have had a very difficult time generating any type of offense.
The Bulldogs finished up the Auburn series one week ago with a 12-1 victory where they got 19 hits and looked like things were definitely on an upswing.
In the opening game of the Tennessee series Friday night, the MSU offense went back into a shell and only managed two runs on 10 hits. Even though the Bulldogs reached the double-digit figure in hits once again, none of them came in a key situation as they left 12 runners on base.
That trend continued into Saturday night's game with the Vols.
The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the 10th inning and MSU left nine more runners on base until Seth Heck drove in C.T. Bradford with a single and secure a 1-0 win over Tennessee.
One must admit that the Bulldogs have a flare for the dramatic at times this season.
Earlier this season in front of 15,586, MSU had another 10th-inning victory when it defeated Ole Miss 6-5 on a RBI single by Gavin Collins.
