Rain in Omaha pushes MSU/Vandy matchup to Wednesday

posted in: Mississippi News | 0

Mississippi State and Vanderbilt’s matchup in Omaha has been postponed. 

The Bulldogs and the Commodores were scheduled to take the field at TD Ameritrade Park at 6 p.m., but the elimination game between Auburn and Louisville has been halted until 9 p.m. tonight due to rain. 

Mississippi State’s game will now begin at 1 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday). 

When the Bulldogs eventually take the field, Peyton Plumlee will get the start, and Kumar Rocker will take the mound for Vandy. In his last outing, Rocker threw a no-hitter during Vanderbilt’s Super Regional matchup with Duke. Plumlee tossed 6.2 innings and allowed just 2 hits in MSU’s close-out game against Stanford that sent the Bulldogs to the CWS. 

The last time Mississippi State and Vandy met, the Bulldogs were shutout in a 1-0 loss during the SEC Tournament.
