Southern Miss takes 1-0 win over MSU in extra innings

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.
