No. 4 Diamond Dawgs Sweep Starkville Regional

Mississippi State Baseball teammates congratulate Brent Rooker (19) during the Diamond Dawgs' Friday [June 3] matchup with the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks. The Bulldogs went on to defeat the Cal State Fullerton Titans Saturday [June 4] and claimed their sixth-ever super regional berth by knocking off Louisiana Tech Sunday [June 5] to win the Starkville Regional before a crowd of 9,092 at Dudy Noble Field. Rooker, a junior outfielder from Germantown, Tennessee, was chosen as the tournament's most outstanding player. MSU will host either Louisiana-Lafayette or Arizona in the Starkville Super Regional, which will start this weekend. Fans are encouraged to follow the team on Twitter for up-to-date game details. Hail State!
