Bulldogs beat Golden Eagles for fourth straight time

PEARL, MS (WDAM) -

Two bulldogs hit 2-run home runs in two straight innings, and Southern Miss suffered it's fourth straight loss in the series with Mississippi State, losing 5-0 in Pearl Tuesday night. Neither team impressed at the plate, as Southern Miss out-hit state 6-5.

Bulldogs catcher Mitch Slaughter did exactly what his last name implies, and sent a Boomer Scarborough pitch over the left field wall in the bottom half of the fourth inning to give State (24-16, 7-5) a 3-0 lead. In the bottom frame of the fifth, rightfielder Hunter Renfroe connected on a Jay Myrick pitch and quickly extended the Bulldogs' lead to 5-0.

Scarborough (1-2) took the loss for Southern Miss (23-17, 7-5), pitching the two opening innings, giving up one run on one hit and three strike-outs.State's Nick Routt earned the win, giving up four hits in the first four innings, but walked only two and struck out four.

Tuesday's shut-out loss by State is the second consecutive for Southern Miss in the series. The Golden Eagles have now gone 25 innings without scoring a run against their in-state rivals. The Black and Gold return to conference play, as they travel to Charleston, W.Va. for a weekend series with Marshall that starts Friday.
