Chris Lemonis has led the Mississippi State baseball team to yet another win as the Bulldogs demolished the Southeastern Louisiana Lions.

The Mississippi State baseball team (8-1 overall, 0-0 conference) got yet another impressive, dominant win as the Bulldogs completely shut down the Southeastern Louisiana Lions (2-5 overall, 0-0 conference). Mississippi State won 12-0 last night, giving MSU even more momentum going into the Frisco Classic this weekend.

The Bulldogs got the game going by taking a 4-0 lead last night in the first inning as Justin Foscue launched a grand slam. That lead was insurmountable as it was, but the Mississippi State baseball team continued to add runs onto the scoreboard last night.

Gunner Halter hit a solo shot home run to extend that lead out to 5-0 in the second inning and then Jake Mangum brought a couple more runs home with a single in the 4th inning, brining the score to 7-0.

From there, the Mississippi State Bulldogs got a pair of runs in the 6th inning, putting MSU up 9-0. The first of the two runs came via a wild pitch that allowed Jordan Westburg to scoot across home plate from third base. The second run was thanks to a sacrifice fly that moved Tanner Allen home.

Then, in the 8th inning, the Bulldogs put three more runs on the board and the Mississippi State baseball team won 12-0.

Peyton Plumlee got the start for MSU, throwing 86 pitches in a total of 6.0 innings while striking out nine opposing batters along the way last night. During that time Plumlee only walked a pair of batters.

Jared Liebelt, Jack Eagan, and Colby White all came from the bullpen and helped the Mississippi State baseball team close out the game with a solid win.
