STARKVILLE— Freshman pinch hitter Charlie Fischer stepped to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the tenth inning with Southern Miss’ first runner in scoring position. Down 1-2 in the count and with the infield shifting, Fischer hit the only RBI of the game and gave Southern Miss all it needed in its 1-0 win against Mississippi State on Friday night.
“I wanted to be in that situation,” Fischer said. “I wanted to be up there. I wanted my name to be called. Coach told me to get loose on the bench. Honestly, I was waiting my turn the whole game.
