Mississippi State scored three runs in the eighth inning to tie Ohio State 6-6 Sunday, the Bulldogs' first tie since 1973. The game was called because the Buckeyes had to fly back to Columbus. Scott Lewis pitched six innings allowing seven hits and three runs _ two earned _ for Ohio State (3-0-1). Joey Collums worked five innings, giving up six hits and three runs _ two earned _ for Mississippi State (1-1-1). J.B. Tucker and Brent Lewis each homered for the Bulldogs.
