Defensive gem helps push MSU past UCA

Posted 6/1/2013 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Survival can come in several forms. On Friday night in front of 11,102 nervous fans at Dudy Noble Field, the Mississippi State University baseball team found survival and turned it into exhilaration thanks to a 3-6-4 double play. The defensive gem came in the top of the sixth inning on a wheel play call in which infielders rotate to their right. MSU sophomore first baseman Wes Rea, who started the improbable double play, then had a run-scoring single in a three-run uprising in the bottom half of the inning that propelled MSU to a 5-3 victory against the University of Central Arkansas in the second game of the day at the Starkville Regional.
