LAFAYETTE, La. – Things were not looking good for Trevor Fitts in the second inning.
The Mississippi State junior right hander let the first three batters reach and loaded the bases two separate times. He surrendered two runs in that frame, but survived it.
Fitts rebounded and threw five innings, while sophomore right hander Myles Gentry retired all 12 batters he faced in the final four innings to help preserve a 5-2 win over San Diego State in game one of the Lafayette (La.) Regional Friday afternoon.
"We were really sloppy in that second inning, and I thought moving forward we got a lot better," MSU head coach John Cohen said.
Fitts and Gentry combined to retire the final 16 San Diego State batters. Fitts retired the last four he faced and Gentry didn't allow a base runner in his four innings of work.
