Mississippi State (25-6, 6-5) scored in the fourth when Brian LaNinfa doubled on a ball that centerfielder lost in the sun and later scored on Michael Rutledge's groundout.

State scored again in the fifth on Joseph Hunter's run-scoring single.

Wyatt singled home Matthew Dunn, who doubled, in the seventh.

The victory went to Rip Warren (4-2), who pitched three scoreless innings in relief of starter Trevor Holder.
