Blog – Cohen, MSU only focused on Florida after Saturday’s loss



Mississippi State lost its fifth Southeastern Conference series Saturday with a 2-1 loss to Florida at Dudy Noble Field.

The Bulldogs are now 22-18 overall and 6-11 in conference play and Warren Nolan has them as No. 91 in the RPI rankings.

When asked about the window closing for postseason play, MSU head coach John Cohen said they aren’t worried about it.

“We play Florida tomorrow,” Cohen said. “That’s what we think about. We only think about one thing and that’s playing Florida tomorrow. There is no other series, there is no other part of the year. We’re playing Florida tomorrow. We’ve got to try and salvage a win tomorrow and that’s the only thing that’s on our plate right now.”

The Bulldogs and Gators close the series with a 2 p.m. first pitch Sunday at Dudy Noble Field. The game can be seen on ESPNU.

Trevor Fitts threw 2 2/3 innings in relief to give the Bulldogs a chance to win. He only allowed two hits and no runs.

The senior likes how the team is coming together.

“I’m really excited about this team, I know it’s kind of weird saying that, but we had 13,000 fans show up for us today and I feel like our team has been playing really great this weekend,” Fitts said. “The wins haven’t shown up, but they will if we keep pitching like we are and the hits will come around. I think our team’s coming together really well. We’ve just got to stay with it.”
