Mississippi State baseball heading into midweek showdown with ULM
After a series win to get the 2023 college baseball season started, it looks like Mississippi State baseball is ready for a couple midweek showdowns with the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.
The Bulldogs are coming off a weekend series win over the VMI Keydets in what was a fairly sloppy showing for the Mississippi State baseball team. The Bulldogs were able to still get a couple wins over the weekend and are now looking to build some momentum going into this weekend with this week’s games against ULM.
Mississippi State hasn’t exactly been playing great baseball lately, though the Bulldogs have shown the ability to score runs by the dozen. Now we just need to see if MSU’s pitchers can show up consistently.
