Quote of the game:
“We’re taking softball swings early in the ballgame when it matters the most. It’s a real lack of maturity.” – MSU head coach John Cohen said of leaving 12 runners on base
Song to describe game: Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It by Darius Rucker – MSU had several opportunities to win the ballgame and I’m sure they will think about those before they go to sleep tonight.
What it means: MSU is now 2-2 and have struggled offensively in spots. A four-game weekend against Holy Cross might be just what the doctor ordered.
