Quote of the game:

“It feels pretty good to be honest. I had some great fielding behind me, I can’t say enough about that. Early in the game I was getting ground ball after ground ball and they made some great plays behind me, all game long really. Of course they scored 13 runs. It’s pretty easy to pitch with a big lead like that.” – MSU senior LHP Lucas Laster

MSU played all three aspects of the game – pitching, hitting and fielding – well as they rolled to the victory.
