Pregame song(s):

This one is for obvious reasons. I hope you enjoy.

One big thing to watch: McCord’s first outing of his career was a struggle. He should have a much easier outing this time around with the Braves. MSU head coach John Cohen has spoke highly of the freshman and he is still fighting for a weekend rotation spot.
