Bulldogs' upset bid at Virginia suspended by rain
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Mississippi State's game against Virginia has been suspended in the middle of the seventh inning by lightning and heavy rain.
The Bulldogs were leading 5-3 and coming to bat six outs from a sweep and their first College World Series berth since 2007 when the rain came at 10:02 p.m.
The game will resume at 4 p.m., the original scheduled time for a possible Game 3 at Virginia's Davenport Field. A victory would finish off a second straight impressive victory for Mississippi State against the nation's No. 6 seed, and sent them on to Omaha, Neb., as one of eight teams remaining.
Adam Frazier was again key to the Bulldogs success. The leadoff man, who had six hits in Saturday's opener with three runs batted in, had two RBI singles and Wes Rea added a two-run home run while Chad Girodo was dazzling in 4 2-3 innings of relief for the Bulldogs.
