Mississippi State pulls out 4-3 win over Southern Miss in 11 innings

PEARL, MS (WLOX) -

Thunderstorms converged on Trustmark Park during the day Tuesday but the weather cleared up in time for Southern Miss and Mississippi State to do battle on the diamond.

In the bottom of the 11, the Bulldogs scored the winning run on a wild pitch with one-out and the bases loaded.  Derrick Armstrong galloped home to give Mississippi State a 4-3 victory.

Mississippi State extended its winning streak over the Golden Eagles to six games.

Bulldogs head coach John Cohen said,"We had so many good offensive situations out there and we didn't cash them in.  I felt like we left about 10 runs out there.  Southern Miss hung in there and hung in there.  I thought we pitched it really well and defended the field great."

Jonathan Holder of Gulfport threw the final 1/2/3 innings, allowed just one hit and struck out three to pick up the victory.  Holder is now 3-1 on the season.  Golden Eagle batters struck out 16 times for a season high.

Ben Bracewell, Brandon Woodruff and Jacob Lindgren of St. Stanislaus all saw action on the mound for Mississippi State.

Mason Robbins of Lucedale tied the game at 3-all for the Golden Eagles with a two run RBI infield single in the top of the fourth inning.

Southern Miss (19-15) returns to action this weekend for a game series on the road at UAB. The Blazers lead C-USA.

Mississippi State (21-13) takes aim on in-state rival Ole Miss beginning Friday at 6:30 p.m. in Starkville for a Super Bulldogs Weekend.  The Rebels (26-8) beat Memphis Tuesday night 9-1.
