Mississippi State Bulldogs run out of game at College World Series

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

 

Mississippi State ran out of gas Tuesday night while UCLA was driven, riding all the way to the top of the mountain in college baseball.

The Bruins completed a two-game sweep in the College World Series ending the Bulldogs hopes of forcing a 3rd and final deciding game.

Nick Vander Tauig pitched out of trouble in the fourth, fifth, and eighth innings to pick up his 4th win in the NCAA Tournament and gave up five hits in 8 innings...

In the top of the 4th inning, Mississippi State was trailing 3-zip and had two men on base, when Harrison Central's Wes Rea belted what could have been a game tying three run blast in most college ballparks, but not at TD Ameritrade Park. Only 3 home runs were hit in the entire College World Series. Those outfield walls must be brought in to bring back excitement to the CWS.

Eric Filia drove in a career-high five runs to lead the Bruins at the plate.

Mississippi State closed out a super season, but didn't accomplished their goal, a first-ever sports national title in school history.

Bulldogs fans packed local establishments throughout the coast Tuesday night. However instead of chants of Go Dawgs and the sound of cowbells, it was mostly silent as the Bruins dominated play.

Ocean Springs High School boys soccer coach Jeff French watched in hopes of a Bulldogs victory.

"The fact is they had a great season," French stated. "You would like to win it all but being number two in the nation is not bad.

1999 Mississippi State graduate David Neuman said UCLA just put it all together.

"They have good pitching, good defense and they take advantage of mistakes and we made too many mistakes tonight."

51 wins and 20 losses and a number two national ranking is nothing to be ashamed of.
