Regan Green and Alexis Silkwood combined to be a formidable duo in the circle for State. Green drew the start and got her 4th win on the season, throwing 6.0 innings and only surrendering 4 hits to a team that averages 7.5 a game. Silkwood came in for the 7th inning and was able to keep A&M from clawing their way back into the game.
Olivia Golden continued to impress at the plate. Golden went 2 for 4 last night with 4 RBIs, 3 of which came off of her 3 run homer in the second inning.
Mississippi State went .400 at the plate last night racking up 14 hits against a ball club that on average only surrenders 4.4 hits per game and holds their opponents to a .188 batting average.

The Bulldogs handed Samantha Show, the Aggies’ best pitcher, her first loss last night. 11 of MSU’s hits and 4 earned runs came against Show in 4.1 innings pitched.
State has now won 16 in a row and are looking to clinch the series over the Aggies with a win today.
