Hail State Wins, Face Vandy Boys in Final

Tanner Leggett’s timely base knock scored Brayland Skinner as No. 7 Mississippi State defeated No. 2 Texas 4-3 on a walk-off Saturday.

The Bulldogs will face the Vanderbilt Commodores in the College World Series finals (Game 1 is Monday night) in a best of three faceoff after the “if necessary” game that the Anchor Down crew forced on Friday afternoon was declared to be a “no contest” by the NCAA and the North Carolina St. Wolfpack was removed from the tournament due to COVID-19 contact tracing protocols.

They await the winner of the Wednesday night matchup between Vanderbilt and the Stanford Cardinal, who eliminated the Arizona Wildcats on Monday afternoon by a tally of 14-5.
