Auburn starter Levale Speigner (7-4) pitched a three-hit shutout through six innings before giving up a two-run home run to Steve Gendron, his first career home run, in the seventh. Speigner scattered five hits, struck out six and did not walk a batter during his seven-inning mound performance.
Matthew Brinson belted his fourth home run of the series with a three-run blast in the eighth off AU relief pitcher Cory Dueitt and J.B. Tucker added an RBI double during a two-run MSU ninth to complete the scoring.
Five of the first six batters faced by MSU starter Joey Collums (2-3) reached base, three of them scoring. Collums, the first of seven Bulldog hurlers in the game, gave up three runs on three hits with three walks in a season-shortest one-inning start. Jacob Blakeney was charged with 10 runs, six of them unearned, after following Collums in the second.
Steve Gendron and Casey Long had a pair of hits each to lead MSU's 10-hit attack.
The Bulldogs return to action Tuesday night, playing host to UAB in a 6:30p.m. game at Dudy Noble Field.
