Mississippi State throws combined one-hitter against Vanderbilt to win first College World Series title

Will Bednar and Landon Sims combined on a one-hitter, Mississippi State scored early and built on its lead, and the Bulldogs won their first national championship with a 9-0 victory over Vanderbilt in the deciding third game of the College World Series finals Wednesday night.

Bednar, working on three days’ rest, walked three of the first five batters he faced before retiring 15 in a row. He turned the game over to the Bulldogs’ star closer to start the seventh, and Vandy broke up the no-hitter when Carter Young singled into center field with one out in the eighth.

It was the first one-hitter at the CWS since 2014, and it seemed like the whole city of Starkville, Mississippi, was at TD Ameritrade Park to witness it.

When third baseman Kamren James threw to first for the final out, the Bulldogs’ dugout emptied and about 100 fans jumped out of the stands to celebrate as Josh Hatcher waved a national championship flag around the infield. The players then walked the warning track reaching up to high-five the fans.

So how far down the draft boards does Kumar Rocker fall after his performance yesterday? A year ago he was the consensus #1 pick, but will he even go in the top ten now?

He's been sliding for awhile now. I have a theory on drafting that guys like him are really good guys to target. I think sometimes teams get so hung up on a highly scouted player that they get too much detail and eventually they focus on what the player can't do rather than what he can do.

Funnily enough, Vanderbilt lost the first game of the Best-of-3 final to Michigan two years ago before coming back to win the title.
