The Mississippi State Bulldogs are national champions. It’s the first time that any team that has hailed from Starkville can make that claim. The Diamond Dawgs defeated the Vanderbilt Commodores in dominant fashion in game three of the College World Series in a 9-0 affair. Will Bednar and Landon Sims combined for a one-hit shutout of the Commodores, who just couldn’t seem to anchor down its defensive troubles in games two and three of the championship series after winning game 1 by a score of 8-2.
