After sweeping #9 Oregon this past weekend at Dudy Noble, Mississippi State faltered to unranked Eastern Kentucky, 16-12.
Konnor Pilkington got a very solid start on the mound. The freshman gave up just one run off three hits and struck out five in 4 innings of work. Pretty good for his first start.
With the exception of the last three innings, the hitting was excellent. The Bulldogs tacked on 12 runs from 15 hits and produced two home runs, one by Nate Lowe and the other by Gavin Collins. Here are some really strong individual performances at the plate:
- Jacob Robson went 3-6 and scored three runs
- Cody Brown went 2-6 and scored two runs
- Nate Lowe went 3-4 and knocked in 7 RBIs
