The Bulldogs won the series yesterday. With the win, they've now won all five SEC road series they've played in and seven of eight SEC series overall. That seems to be pretty good, if you ask me. Mississippi State is now 36-14-1 and 17-9 in the SEC. Auburn fell to 22-29 and 8-18 with the loss yesterday. Today's game is at 1:00 and though it won't be televised, you can watch it online.
The Bulldogs thumped the Tigers on the head last night and hit their way to a 16-6 victory. MSU accumulated 21 hits en route to yesterday's win. Daniel Black has all the info about the win.
Among yesterday's approximate 17 million hits, the Bulldogs accumulated many extra base hits. Our friend Dawg From Huntsville broke down some of the improvements MSU has made in getting extra base hits this season.
Again, keep an eye on the conference picture. Here's what you need to know from MSU History about who we need to win and lose across the SEC.

Is there a feature yet on Watch ESPN where we can get a camera on Cole Gordon at all times?— Robbie Faulk (@robbiefaulk247) May 14, 2016
Our very own Cristilmethod had a grand idea regarding the subject
When Cole Gordon hit his triple I could have sworn I could hear Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an American" playing— cristilmethod (@cristilmethod) May 15, 2016
And the university made it happen
So, with that out of the way, let's talk about some baseball, shall we?
