CWS Going To Game 3 After Mississippi State Beats Vandy 13-2, How To Watch

Videos by OutKick

The controversy surrounding the College World Series in Omaha has been a huge talking point in recent days. Last week, the NCAA forced NC State to forfeit and  has since been met with plenty of criticism — and rightfully so. But all we can do now is get back to baseball.

The College World Series finals includes two teams from the SEC, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State. In the first game, the Commodores got a statement win over the Bulldogs with an 8-2 victory. Game 2 was on Tuesday night, however, and the results were quite the opposite.

State absolutely trounced Vandy, winning 13-2 and forcing a third — and final — game. That matchup for all the marbles will take place on Wednesday night. And according to Bulldogs coach Chris Lemonis, his squad is now in good position because they were able to rest their pitchers.

“We’re ecstatic because, one, we’re still playing, and, two, we used two arms tonight,” Lemonis said, via U.S. News. “We have an opportunity to use some different guys tomorrow now because of the score. It was nice after the game. I grabbed Landon, I said, ‘Man, it was sure nice not having to pitch you tonight’ because I feel like in every win for the last month he has been out there.”

State (49-18) and Vandy (49-17) both have similar records, but the ‘Dores are searching for a second-straight national title while the Bulldogs are trying to get their first national championship — in any sport — in school history.

Who prevails? You’ll have to wait and find out on Wednesday night. The game starts at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, but you can also live-stream it on the ESPN app and ESPN.com.

  1. When Vandy stinks they truly stink all around. That was the sloppiest, most undisciplined performance I have ever seen by a team in a college World Series last night. Three errors and no telling how many walks last night. When you watch them play it’s maddening because they just hand the game to the opponent on a platter, it’s not like the opponent is so much better. They have played like this throughout the World Series for some reason. It’s like they are listless, distracted, and Unfocused. Those are not traits of Tim Corbin teams, so I’m not sure what’s going on. There’s no reason a team with this much talent should look like that. Maybe it’s the vaccine? Probably don’t feel so hot afterwards huh?
