Tallahassee Regional Final Score: Samford Upsets Mississippi State In First Game, 5-0

Two Bulldogs teams came into their game Friday in the Tallahassee Regional wanting to get a win to give them at least two more games in their season. The No.3 seed Samford Bulldogs, buoyed by a four-run eighth inning, defeated the No. 2 seed Mississippi State Bulldogs 5-0 on Friday.

Samford starting pitcher Charles Bedford pitched a gem, going eight innings and allowing only five hits. Samford took the lead in the top of the second inning off a solo home run by right fielder Brandon Miller. The game then went scoreless until the eighth inning when three Samford players hit home runs.

First baseman Saxon Butler and left fielder Christiaan Durdaller hit solo home runs while designated hitter C.K. Irby hit a two-run shot. Irby pitched the ninth inning to preserve the Samford shut out.

Both teams now await the result of Friday night's game between the No. 4 seed UAB Blazers and the host and No. 1 seed Florida State Seminoles to see what the next matchup will be.
