Blog – Bulldogs and Tigers split (with video)

After last night’s game was suspended with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning, and No. 18 (Collegiate Baseball) Mississippi State leading, it was decided that it would resume following Friday night’s game two.

Auburn beat MSU 3-1 in the second game of the Southeastern Conference series, but the Bulldogs won game one 6-3.

The Bulldogs and Tigers will square off in a rubber game today. The game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m.

The Tigers will throw junior left hander Will Kendall, while the Bulldogs will toss sophomore lefty Jacob Lindgren.

The Tigers got a solid night out of junior LHP Michael O’Neal (8-2). He picked up his the victory with a seven inning performance. He gave up no runs and only allowed five hits.

“Their left hander did a fabulous job, O’Neal,” MSU head coach John Cohen said. “I was really impressed with him. I thought at the end he was getting a little tired, I thought we were going to get to him and have a knockout punch.”

The Bulldogs only run came in the ninth when C.T. Bradford scored on a RBI single by Nick Ammirati.

MSU’s Kendall Graveman was looking for his fourth-consecutive complete game win. It wasn’t to be. Graveman pitched seven innings, but gave up three runs, one earned, on 10 hits.

The Bulldogs sent sophomore closer Jonathan Holder back out to pitch the conclusion of game one. He struck out five of the six batters he faced.

He collected his 12th save of the season which ties him third all time with Caleb Reed for most in a season by a MSU pitcher. He also now has 21 career saves which also ties Reed for third most in a career by a MSU pitcher.

Ross Mitchell (7-0) pitched three innings in relief to pick up the win.
