MacNamee hits walk-off to lift Mississippi State over Vandy

Mississippi State beats Vanderbilt, 10-8

Elijah MacNamee has done it again. 

Just one week after hitting a walk-off home run in the Tallahassee Regional to keep Mississippi State’s season alive in an elimination game, MacNamee continued his heroics with another walk-off homer as the Bulldogs are now one win away from a trip to the College World Series.

Tied at eight against Vanderbilt in the bottom of the ninth, MacNamee sent an 0-2 breaking ball over the left field fence to give Mississippi State a 10-8 win, and a 1-0 lead in the Nashville Super Regional.

Watch MacNamee’s walk-off here:

The ninth-inning homer was the second of the game for MacNamee and his eighth in the last 15 games. He was named the Most Outstanding Player in the Tallahassee Regional last weekend.

The Bulldogs and Commodores will meet Saturday at 9:30 p.m. ET in Game 2.
