In a best-of-three series, it’s now “win or go home” for Mississippi State in Game 2 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska.

MSU Storyline

After the NCAA’s decision to remove N.C. State from the CWS in response to breaking the health and safety protocol, the announcement was met with skepticism. Going into Game 1, Vanderbilt may have felt the need to show they deserve the opportunity they’ve been handed. If that’s the case, they definitely made the statement loud and clear with a seven-run first inning.

Down 1-0 entering the bottom of the first inning, the Commodores forced Mississippi State’s starting pitcher Christian MacLeod out of the game in the first inning, after he allowed six runs on just two hits after facing eight batters. MacLeod’s control was non-existent as he walked two batters and hit two more in his two-thirds of an inning.

Vanderbilt Storyline

After giving up four runs himself, he was pulled from the game with two batters on base. His relief, Chase Patrick, came in and promptly gave up a three-run home run to Vanderbilt’s Jayson Gonzalez, of which Patrick was only tacked for one run on his stat sheet. To start the bottom of the second inning, another pitching change had already been made. Vanderbilt recorded just one more run on two hits for the rest of the game.

It was Vanderbilt’s best offensive performance of the CWS, topping their seven-run performance in their opener against Arizona. Conversely, however, Mississippi’s part matched their worst offensive and defensive totals. The Bulldogs scored just two runs in a winning effort against Texas in their tournament opener and gave up eight runs in their semi-final loss to the Longhorns.

This isn’t the first time that Mississippi State has faced elimination this postseason, and they know how to respond. Now that Vanderbilt isn’t completely fresh, the Bulldogs should feel confident entering the game. Look for Mississippi State to even up the series, forcing a “winner take all” Game 3 on Wednesday.
