Though the Bulldogs have plenty of College World Series history, Mississippi State’s run to Omaha this year was anything but typical—especially with a head coaching change just three games into the regular season. But interim head coach Gary Henderson has had the Bulldogs playing at a higher level down the stretch, and they showed impressive fortitude in a third-straight classic at Vanderbilt, winning 10-6 in 11 innings.

Both teams played with incredible resiliency, as they have all weekend long. After Jake Mangum fueled a three-run ninth inning for the Bulldogs, the Commodores responded with two huge ninth-inning home runs by Pat DeMarco and Ethan Paul to tie it.

But in the 11th, Mississippi State simply found an extra offensive gear, putting up a four-spot and turning to righthander Keegan James to shut the door.

"It just is an incredible group of kids," Henderson said. "It is the most resilient group I have been around as a coach. This is special. We have the best fans in the nation. They traveled and made this feel like a home game. Can't say enough about how proud I am of this team and how proud I am to be their coach."

So glad to see Vandy get beat.  And we won't have to listen or see the whistler any more.
