Starkville, Miss. – Mississippi State baseball held its fifth intrasquad scrimmage of the spring Sunday morning, ending in a 1-1 tie between Gray and Black at Dudy Noble Field. The scheduled seven-inning affair was canceled after rain shortened it to two complete stanzas.

In a battle of first-year pitchers, right-handed freshman Austin Sexton squared off against fellow freshman righty Dakota Hudson. Sexton gave up one run on three hits and a walk, striking out three. Hudson fanned three Gray batters on an almost identical stat line, yielding one run on three hits and a pair of walks.

“Dakota has shown just a plus breaking ball and great velocity,” head coach John Cohen said. “He is a great athlete. Sometimes those big guys get branded as non-athletes, but he is certainly not that.”

Gray scored first in the top half of the opening frame when senior outfielder Derrick Armstrong scored on a liner to right field by senior outfielder Demarcus Henderson. Black responded with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first by preseason All-SEC first baseman Wes Rea, which plated junior outfielder Jake Vickerson.
