Pollorena relies on faith, family throughout adversity
Bottom of the ninth. One out. The score tied at 1. It was the perfect set up for what would begin a magical run for Luis Pollorena and Mississippi State’s baseball team. Pollorena stood at third base, just 90 feet from victory. With the crack of the bat, Pollorena retreated to third. When the centerfielder made the catch, Pollorena tagged up and broke for home.
Bulldogs bounce back against Braves, travel to Lexington
After dropping their first SEC series to the LSU Tigers last weekend, the Mississippi State Bulldogs got back to their winning form Tuesday, defeating the Alcorn State Braves 7-6.
The game was not smooth-sailing for the Bulldogs, however, as they had to overcome a 5-0 deficit after giving up four runs in the top of the first inning. Starting RHP Brandon Woodruff only went 0.2 innings, giving up three hits and three earned runs.
