The Mississippi State Bulldogs travel to Biloxi sporting a nine-game winning streak. MSU has all the momentum, and it could not have come at a better time, with SEC play on the horizon.

MSU needs to keep this momentum, and they will face a couple of tough opponents this week. South Alabama, a program familiar with postseason baseball, will provide a test for MSU.

The key player for MSU will be Hunter Hines, who bats fourth for the Bulldogs. He bats behind Dakota Jordan, who has been on a hot streak. If Hines can get going, this offense will reach a level it has yet to reach this season.
