As it turns out, our victory over MSST kept them from winning the SEC West.

A university-wide power outage left Dudy Noble Field without electricity before No. 5 Mississippi State and South Carolina's series finale on Saturday.

The problem was resolved shortly after MSU senior Peyton Plumlee hurled his first pitch past the plate, but the Bulldogs' bats remained without electricity for nearly the duration of the game. The Gamecocks had plenty of energy in theirs essentially from start to finish.

South Carolina returned the favor from Mississippi State's first two wins of the series by beating the Bulldogs, 10-8. State would have won the SEC West regular season title with a win. Instead, the Dogs suffered one of the most crushing conference losses of the season in their final game before the SEC Tournament in Hoover.

A completely different perspective from the MSST side of things.
