MSU Softball Team Ranked

Posted by Kevin on February 26, 2008

I’m a fan of collegiate fast pitch softball, but I must admit I don’t see/read much of the sport until regional play starts. Having said that, Mississippi State’s softball squad gives Bulldog Nation something to be proud of and root for. The Lady Bulldogs are ranked 18th nationally and are 13-2 on the season. Last week State reached its highest ever ranking at #15 before having their school second-best 11-game win streak broken. Way to go, ladies!

Freshman Forrest Moore made his first collegiate start for the MSU baseball team this afternoon and pitched pretty well in a 9-2 Bulldog win over UAB this afternoon. Moore gave up two runs on five hits in five innings of work against the Blazers. He gave up three walks and struck out five batters. A good midweek start by my count. Freshman reliever Michael Busby and closer Aaron Weatherford did not allow a single hit in their combined four innings of relief pitching.

Redshirt freshman Jason Nappi provided the fireworks for the Bulldog offense with a fifth inning grand slam to put MSU ahead to stay. Nappi and sophomore Russ Sneed have hit safely in all four ballgames thus far.
