EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State baseball jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back on the way to a 9-2 Victory for MSU over in-state foe Central Michigan Tuesday night at McLane Stadium at Kobs Field.
With the win, MSU improves to 30-19 on the year, the Spartans’ first 30-win season since 2016. Central Michigan slid to 32-19 with the loss. Michigan State finishes with a 6-2 record in official games vs in-state foes, including 4-0 at home.
While Tuesday was the first meeting between MSU and CMU since 2019, the Michigan State win also snapped a four-game losing skid in the Spartans’ series with the Chippewas, and MSU now leads 37-31 in games in East Lansing, and the Spartans have won 15 of the last 24 overall meetings dating back to 2011 in closing CMU’s overall lead to 71-63 in the all-time series that dates back to 1911. MSU also improved to 18-13 vs. CMU under head coach Jake Boss Jr.
“I’m proud of our guys, they came ready to play today and I thought we played very well,” Boss said. “Obviously, if you put up five runs in the first inning, that kind of takes the edge off a little bit, but a lot of good approaches tonight at the plate. I thought we got really good pitching all night long too, and again, just very pleased with how we played tonight.”
VICTORY FOR MSU!!!!
