Game 2: Mississippi St defeats Texas A&M 11-6 (Full Box)

Baseball is really simple. Sometimes it comes down to one single major mistake. One bad throw led to a six-run third inning for the Bulldogs and the Aggies could not catch up, losing 11-6 Saturday night. A ground ball double play ball that should have ended the inning turned into a wide throw from Michael Helman and two runs for Mississippi St.

The Bulldogs piled on four more and two additional runs in the fourth to lead 8-0. John Doxakis and Duztin Sanez were responsible for all eight runs and Doxakis was charged with his second loss of the season.

Christian Roa, Chandler Jozwiak and Landon Miner combined for three innings of work and surrendered zero runs. Yet, senior Cason Sherrod seemed absolutely lost on the mound on Saturday. Failing to record an out, Sherrod gave up two doubles, a walk and three additional runs.

Finding themselves down 8-0, the Aggie offense responded with five straight runs of their own before Sherrod allowed three more for the Bulldogs. George Janca led the way for the Aggies, going 3-for-4 at the plate and scoring one run. Michael Helman bounced back well from a poor performance Friday, going 2-for-5 with 3 RBI’s on a Whammy to right field in the top of the 5th inning.

I will say one more additional thing about this game, the review process in college baseball came under an intense amount of scrutiny on Saturday and for good reason. If the NCAA and SEC are going to take an unnecessary amount of time to review calls, then they need to at least be correct. Braden Shewamke beat the throw to first in the top if the fifth inning. Period.
