Another Super Regional game, another walkoff home run. Elijah MacNamee hit a blast Friday in Game 1. JJ Bleday's homer in the wee hours of Sunday gives Vanderbilt a 4-3 win in Game 2.
The Bulldogs and Commodores will have a winner take all matchup on Sunday.
Jake Mangum got MSU on the board with a 2-run single in the 2nd. He also threw out a Commodore trying to take 3rd base.
