MSU Wednesday Baseball Scrimmage Stats/Info

Freshman Brayden Jones was 2-for-2 with 3 RBI

Mississippi State baseball played their ninth scrimmage of the fall Wednesday afternoon. Included are complete stats and notes. The next scrimmage is Friday with the start time tentatively set for 3:00 pm.

Notes from the park:
  • The six-inning scrimmage started at about 4:30 pm.
  • The pitchers continue to pitch at less than full velocity for the most part.
  • Sophomore pitcher Ben Bracewell has begun throwing again and is in stage 2 of his 10 stage rehab.
  • I just thought I would pass this on. I've observed the players for 9 scrimmage and something that has been very noticeable is how much these kids seem to really like each other. There seems to be great chemistry building among them.
  • This bit of information was pointed out to me during yesterday's scrimmage. Ten pitchers selected to this year's MLB All-Star game have had Tommy John surgery during their careers.
  • During the fall, the team is using the new metal bats that have been approved to hit with in college this year. When you hear the bat hit the ball it almost sounds like a ball hitting a wooden bat.
  • Highlights from the scrimmage:

  • Hitting highlights:
  • Senior Nick Vickerson walked all four of his at-bats.
  • Senior Ryan Collins was 1-for-2 with 2 walks and an RBI.
  • Junior David Bishop was 1-for-3 with a walk, double and 3 RBI.
  • Freshman Demarcus Henderson was 2-for-3 with an RBI.
  • Freshman Jake Smithey was 2-for-3.
  • Freshman Hunter Renfroe was 2-for-2 with a walk, triple and 1 RBI.
  • Freshman Brayden Jones was 2-for-2 with a walk and 3 RBI.
  • Pitching highlights:

  • Junior Brandon McHenry threw 4 innings, allowing 1 (earned) run on 2 hits and 4 walks while striking out 3.
  • Freshman Tanner Gaines threw 3 innings, allowing 1 (earned) run on 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 1.
