The Mississippi State Bulldogs have been in the NCAA tournament since winning the national title in 2021. As the two-seed, State will start its journey on the road.

Their opponent, St. John's, is coming off a magical run in the Big East Tournament. The Red Storm won the tournament and are playing their best baseball.

However, State played well in Hoover despite some severe shortcomings on offense from their top players. A key hitter for the Bulldogs in this game is Hunter Hines.

The junior first baseman is in a slump, but perhaps his first postseason appearance will break the slump. He is essential to this team if they want to make a run.

The key pitcher for State is Tyler Davis. The VCU transfer has been lights out this year for State, and he will undoubtedly be put into pressure-filled situations and must deliver.

The bullpen has come a long way for this team, and Davis is a massive part of that.

Last time out, Bulldogs:Mississippi State lost their previous game to Tennessee 6-5 in the quarterfinals of the SEC tournament. MSU fell behind 3-0, but a five-run fifth inning gave them the lead. However, Tennessee got a solo home run in the eighth to take the lead, and they held on to win.
