Bulldogs Blast Miss. Valley State 16-1 Ahead of Georgia Series

Coach John Cohen wanted his Diamond Dogs to stay focused on business even if the opponent was a struggling SWAC squad. "Mission accomplished," he could say after a 16-1 victory.

Cohen was pleased with every aspect of the win, from five shutout innings by starter Konnor Pilkington to better midweek relief work from the bullpen. And the 19-hit barrage had a most unique highlight as centerfielder Jacob Robson cleared the bases with a drive off the fence and was able to come on home himself for an inside-the-park grand slam.

Cohen discusses the victory and looks ahead to the home series with Georgia, starting Thursday evening.
