Leggett’s RBI hit in 9th sends Mississippi St. to CWS finals
Mississippi State stunned Texas on Saturday for a trip to the finals.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Tanner Leggett’s single in the bottom of the ninth inning scored the tiebreaking run, and Mississippi State advanced to the College World Series finals with a 4-3 victory over Texas.
The Bulldogs reached the finals for the first time since 2013 and will play Vanderbilt in a best-of-three series starting Monday night. Vanderbilt got its spot in the finals when the NCAA removed North Carolina State from the tournament because of COVID-19 protocols. Leggett entered the game as a defensive replacement in the seventh inning.
