Mississippi State has always been able to count on second baseman Brett Pirtle to make the routine plays.
At times, he can also be quite spectacular on defense.
When it comes to patrolling the infield for the Bulldogs, Pirtle said he goes over what may happen in his mind before it occurs.
"It's just staying aggressive on every grounder and wanting to make the tough play as well," Pirtle said. "Sometimes in games, I just visualize making a great play. Sometimes they don't happen and sometimes they do.
"It's not being surprised about a great play because I know I can make it. I just want to make the great plays day in and day out."
