MSU Wednesday Baseball Scrimmage Stats/Info

Mississippi State baseball played their 17th scrimmage of the fall Wednesday afternoon. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Friday afternoon, time to be announced.

Notes from the park:
  • The seven scrimmage started at about 5:00 pm. Each batter started their at-bat with either a 2-1 or 1-2 count on them throughout the entire scrimmage.
  • Freshman first baseman Wes Rea didn't play in the game due to a minor ankle injury.
  • Each pitcher can throw no more than 20 pitches per inning. When they reach that 20-pitch count the inning stops no matter what the count is on the hitter and how many outs there are in the inning.
  • During the fall, the team is using the new metal bats that have been approved to hit with in college this year. When you hear the bat hit the ball it almost sounds like a ball hitting a wooden bat.
  • Highlights from the scrimmage:

  • Hitting highlights:
  • Freshman C.T. Bradford was 2-for-3 with 2 RBI.
  • Freshman Daryl Norris was 1-for-2 with a walk and a double.
  • Senior Ryan Collins was 2-for-3 with a walk.
  • Freshman Adam Frazier was 1-for-3 with a sac fly and 2 RBI.
  • Junior Brett Bozeman was 2-for-3 with a sac fly and 2 RBI.
  • Senior Wes Johnson, in his three at-bats, walked twice and was hit by a pitch.
  • Freshman Jake Smithey was 1-for-1 with a walk.
  • Pitching highlights:

  • Freshman RHP Tanner Gaines threw 5 innings, allowing 1 (earned) run on 5 hits, 4 walks and 1 hit batsman while striking out 1.
  • Redshirt junior RHP Jordan Faulkner threw 5 innings, allowing 2 (earned) runs on 5 hits, 5 walks and 2 hit batsmen while striking out 7.
  • Freshman RHP Brayden Jones threw 2 innings, allowing 0 runs on 1 hit and 3 walks while striking out 2.
  • Gold Glove fielding highlights:

  • First baseman Brett Bozeman, running away from the infield and into right field, reached out to make a catch of a popup.
  • With the bases loaded, shortstop Jonathan Ogden fielded a ball deep in the hole between short and third. Although he saw he had no chance to throw the runners out at first or second, he noticed that the runner that had gone to third had already run around the bag at third and was heading home. He knew it would be a very tough play for him to to throw the runner out at home plate so he threw the ball to the third baseman who then threw the ball to home where the catcher tagged the runner out.
  • Center fielder Brent Brownlee made a great diving, running catch of a ball in left centerfield.
