Mississippi State and Florida State had to wait through a 2 plus hour rain delay in the 9th inning of their Tallahassee Regional matchup. Elijah MacNamee delivered some drama in the Sunshine State.
He hit a three-run walkoff home run in the bottom of the 9th to give MSU a 3-2 win over the Seminoles.

Ethan Small did his part to keep Mississippi State's season alive. He struck out 8 in 6 innings, allowing 2 earned runs. Drew Parrish tossed 8 shutout innings until giving up that 3-spot in the 9th.
