It was bumpy and far from perfect, but Chris Lemonis and his Mississippi State baseball team found a way to win their three-game home series agianst the Georgia Southern Eagles. The Mississippi State Bulldogs claimed the series Sunday afternoon as strong pitching in games one and three led the Bulldogs to 5-1 and 10-2 wins respectively.

But, uh, that doesn't overshadow the humbling and infuriating 11-4 loss in game two. That loss was bad.

And really the entirety of the start to this Mississippi State baseball season has just been flat out bad. But we'll talk more about that in a minute.

MSU's Nate Dohm, the Bulldogs start in game one, dominated during his time on the mound, striking out 10 over 6.2 innings of one-run ball to pick up the win. And it certainly helped that he had the assistance of the Bulldogs' bats backing him with 11 hits.

That aforementioned game two was a mess as Khal Stephen got hit with seven runs in 2.1 innings. The Eagles battered the Bulldogs and racked up a dozen hits during the game. And that's pretty far from ideal, to be completely honest.

But hey, in game three, Jurrangelo Cijntje's seven strikeouts and 15 hits from Mississippi State led the Bulldogs to a solid 10-2 win over the Eagles.

The series moved Mississippi State to 4-4 on the season while Georgia Southern now sits at 2-5. So... what can we learn from this series?
