Saturday lineup vs. Mississippi State
Not as hot today as it was yesterday, but just as humid. Partly cloudy and 85 degrees. Humidity is 49 % with winds from south at 15 mph. Team is wearing the same gray pinstripe jerseys they wore in the final two games of the LSU series as well as yesterday's win.
Sonny Gray Update: He took a pretty good shot yesterday in the sixth inning collision, had a bloody nose and headache. His nose isn't broken but is sore. He said he was doing better today other than his nose hurting.
