Baseball is a game full of odd bounces and marginally thin lines drawn in the sand.
Mississippi State learned about that the past two games.
After winning the first two games in the series against the Holy Cross Crusaders, MSU dropped the last two games of a four-game weekend series, a 6-1 loss on Sunday at Dudy Noble Field.
The Bulldogs (4-4) used five pitchers in the effort, and "big misses" by the hurlers hurt them early.
"We just had huge misses on the mound and they didn't," MSU head coach John Cohen said. "When you challenge the strike zone the way they did, your defense is going to engage. We just had huge miss after huge miss. You can't have that kind of misses we're having out on the mound."
