Mississippi State Baseball beats North Alabama 8-4


STARKVILLE, Miss. – The Mississippi State Bulldogs conclude their regular season schedule with an 8-4 win over North Alabama. The story of the game was the return of Bulldog pitcher Nate Dohm.

The Indiana native missed the past five weekends due to injury and was MSU’s top prospect to start the season. The long-awaited return exceeded expectations as the hard-throwing righty pitched two perfect innings.

Things didn’t start well for MSU, however, as they were tied at two as the Lions entered the sixth inning. Joe Powell broke the tie with this second home run of the day, a three-run shot.

Another impressive pitcher was Colby Holcombe, who threw two solid innings and gave up one run on a home run. Cam Schuelke threw the final 3.2 innings and was his usual self.

The Michigan native gave up two runs and struck out six. It wasn’t a pretty match, but all that mattered was getting the win and avoiding injuries.

The Bulldogs stayed on track to host a regional, and now they set their sights on a three-game series with Missouri. State needs to win the series and they will likely pull off a sweep that will remove all doubt.

The series begins Thursday at 6:00 PM CT on SEC Network+.
