Another Day another win for Mississippi State Sports. This time it is the Softball team getting an 8-0 run rule win over UAB. The game was played at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium where the Women’s College World Series was played. MSU improved it’s record to 24-9 on the season and went 2-1 on the weekend, which included a tough 5-3 loss at Defending National Champion Oklahoma.
The Bulldogs scored 1 run each in the 4th and 5th inning. Before an expoloding 6 run 6th inning.
Caroline Seitz led the Bulldogs with 3 hits. And she also earned her 200th career hit in the process. Holly Ward was credited with the win improving her record to 7-4.
But this was no ordinary road game for the Bulldogs. They had a bunch of MSU fans to support them in OKC. Along with the tunes of Go State and 2K from the MSU Band. Which having the band at the softball game only enhanced the experience from everyone.
Seeing MSU athletes support each other at games makes my day. And it is no different when the band takes a day out of their trip to support the Softball team. Talking to some fans at the game, they truly appreciated hearing the familiar tunes in a somewhat sparse crowd.
While I assume Oklahoma drew a lot of fans later in the day as they were scheduled to play. MSU Fans by far and away again had the most fans at this event. And I have seen a ton of Mississippi State fans around Bricktown, Stockyard City, and the OKC National Memorial. Just remarkable to see this fan base travel for a sport that few cared about 4 years ago.
It was a great weekend for Mississippi State Softball. Mississippi State Women’s Basketball takes on Baylor tomorrow night at Chesapeake Energy Arena at 6:36 PM on ESPN. A preview will be out later today.
