TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Wes Rea and Sam Frost each hit two-run
doubles and Southeastern Conference champion Mississippi State
eliminated UAB 8-1 in NCAA regional play Saturday.
Rea's double into the left field corner ignited a five-run sixth
that catapulted the Bulldogs into a 7-1 lead. Frost, whose
fourth-inning double gave Mississippi State a 2-0 lead, added his
third RBI in the sixth with a sacrifice fly.
Ross Mitchell (3-0) picked up the victory after replacing
starter Kendall Graveman in the fourth. Caleb Reed went the final
four and two-thirds innings to register his ninth save.
Ryan Nance (4-4) was tagged with the loss for the Blazers, who
scored their lone run on an infield ground out. The Conference USA
champions (32-30) scored just two runs in the double-elimination
Mississippi State (40-23) will meet the loser of Saturday's
winners' bracket game between Florida State and Samford in an
elimination game Sunday.
