State Beats The Rain And South Carolina

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) _ Steve Gendron had the game-tying and winning RBIs as Mississippi State defeated South Carolina 4-3 in 11 innings Saturday. Both starters had stellar efforts, though neither was involved in the decision. Chris Spigner allowed three hits and three runs in seven innings for the Gamecocks (29-10, 9-8 Southeastern Conference). Paul Maholm gave up five hits and three runs in eight innings while striking out a career-high 13. Garris Gonce hit a three-run home run in the sixth to give South Carolina a 3-2 lead. Gendron's sacrifice fly tied the game in the seventh at 3. Mississippi State (20-14, 10-7) loaded the bases with one out in the 11th against Blake Taylor (2-1) before Gendron's single ended it. Brandon Medders (4-1) pitched three one-hit innings of relief with three strikeouts. The Bulldogs' 16 strikeouts was a season high. The game was delayed 58 minutes in the sixth by rain and another 11 minutes in the ninth due to lightning. The Bulldogs are tied for third in the SEC West, a game behind LSU and Mississippi. South Carolina is a game out of first in the East.
