Mississippi defeats Mississippi State, 8-4

Mississippi held on to defeat Mississippi State, 8-4, after leading 6-1 in the early innings of the Wednesday night Mayor's Trophy Game in Jackson, Mississippi. Josh Christian's late-inning two-run home run off of reliever Ryan Carroll put the game out of reach.

MSU and Miss. will face each other later in the season when Mississippi travels to Starkville for their three-game SEC series with Misissippi State.

Mississippi State takes on the Georgia Bulldogs beginning this Friday night. Gametime is set for 6:30 p.m. Because this weekend is Super Bulldog Weekend, a large crowd is expected for each game so get there early.
