For the ninth time in school history and first time under coach John Cohen, the Mississippi State University baseball team is going to the College World Series.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- John Cohen knew this day would come in his coaching career.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Through the craziness of a ninth inning where everything seemed to be falling apart, the Mississippi State University players knew two comforting things: They had the lead and Johnathan Holder had the baseball. Those facts were all MSU needed to settle down as No. 6 national seed University of Virginia attempted a last-ditch comeback effort.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The Mississippi State University baseball program is six outs from the College World Series. With MSU leading No. 6 national seed University of Virginia 5-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning in game two of the NCAA Charlottesville Super Regional, a second weather delay forced the teams off the field at 10:02 p.m. Sixty-nine minutes later, the game was suspended until 3 p.m. today.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Clearly all Adam Frazier and Hunter Renfroe needed was to hear their names called in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The Mississippi State University baseball team was going to do everything possible to rattle the freshman pitcher staring just over 60 feet in front of them.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Kendall Graveman proved he doesn't need his best stuff to win a NCAA Super Regional game on the road.
STARKVILLE -- In addition to the penalties handed out to the Mississippi State University football program and its former assistant coach, Angelo Mirando, Will Redmond also felt the wrath of the NCAA.
STARKVILLE -- Cord Sandberg said after he was drafted it wouldn't take very long to decide which sport he would play. He wasn't lying.

OXFORD -- Senior right-handers Brett Huber and Tanner Bailey became the final two University of Mississippi baseball players to be selected in the 2013 Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft on Saturday.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- University of Alabama senior pitcher Charley Sullivan and senior catcher Brett Booth were selected Saturday on the third day of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft.
EUGENE, Ore. -- If his first year competing on the collegiate level was any indication, Piotr Antosik has a bright future. Although the freshman from Poland didn't place in the javelin, he throw of 210 feet helped him finish 18th at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Saturday at Hayward Field.
The Mississippi State University baseball team is one victory away from getting back to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., for the first time since 2007.
STARKVILLE -- Unlike John Cohen, who keeps his cell phone in the back pocket of his uniform pants, Mississippi State University pitching coach Butch Thompson doesn't need to hear or want to listen to the instant reaction to his moves.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University junior outfielder Hunter Renfroe has experienced what he calls the "surreal moment" of being a first-round pick in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft.
The NCAA placed the Mississippi State University football program on probation for two years and reduced the number of its scholarships from 85 to 83 Friday as the result of an investigation by the NCAA Committee of Infractions into improprieties in the recruiting of Will Redmond, a defensive back from Memphis.
Infractions' decision regarding MSU. Britton Banowsky, the chair of the NCAA committee and current commissioner of Conference USA, is conducting the teleconference.
STARKVILLE -- Three years ago, Hunter Renfroe found out in an undramatic way he had been drafted. Renfroe was taking extra batting practice at Copiah Academy and didn't notice he had missed several missed calls from the Boston area.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University coach John Cohen did everything but announce Kendall Graveman would be his starting pitcher for game one of the NCAA Charlottesville Super Regional.
