Pregame song(s): Raining on Sunday by Radney Foster – Most of you might know this song as a Keith Urban song, but Foster wrote it and it’s a really good version. It’s no supposed to rain, but it is a Sunday. I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: MSU goes for the series win today. After losing late in game three, MSU looks to finish the weekend with three wins. Also watch the defense. Errors have plauged MSU in the last four games in which they are 2-2.
Game one recap: Bulldogs defeat Crusaders 6-2
