Watch: Mississippi State softball escapes rundown in amazing display of baserunning

Baserunning perfection. That's what the Mississippi State softball team pulled off in the second inning on Friday against LSU.

With runners on second and third with no outs, Bulldogs second baseman Cayln Adams hit a soft grounder to Tigers pitcher Carley Hoover. Somehow, someway, Mississippi State escaped the play with the bases loaded and no outs.
