TUCSON, AZ -

C.T. Bradford hit a pair of triples to sparkNo. 10 Mississippi State, and the Bulldogs received a strong effort from theirbullpen to hold off host Arizona in a 6-4 victory in the final game of the HiCorbett Classic Sunday evening.

Bradford went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two more runs batted in to leadthe Bulldogs' offense, while relievers Jonathan Holder and Jacob Lindgren heldthe Wildcats to just two runs over the final eight innings.

Bradford's triples helped the Bulldogs fight back from an initial two-rundeficit. With two outs in the bottom of the second, Bradford tripled toleft-center before Cody Brown singled him home to cut Arizona's lead to 2-1.

Later, Bradford led off the fifth with another triple against right-handerAustin Schnabel. Brown then drew a walk and moved into scoring position on awild pitch. Derrick Armstrong followed with a groundout to plate Bradford forthe tying run, and Brown scored the go-ahead run on Zack Randolph's sacrificefly.

Mississippi State (12-7) added a pair of runs in the sixth inning. An errorallowed Alex Detz to reach base to open the inning, and Detz later scored onSeth Heck's double. Heck then came in on Bradford's sacrifice fly to handMississippi State, the designated home team for the game, a 5-2 cushion.

Arizona (8-9) jumped on Bulldogs' starter Dakota Hudson for two first-inningruns. Trent Gilbert, who finished a sensational weekend at the plate with a3-for-4 game, drove in a pair of runs with a double to right-center.

The Wildcats were poised to add to their lead in the second when Bobby Dalbecdoubled and Willie Calhoun drew a walk against Hudson. The Bulldogs counteredwith Holder, who escaped the two-on, no-out jam.

Holder (W, 1-1) shut down the Wildcats all the way until the seventh inningwhen Gilbert was again part of the action. With Cody Ramer on first and twoout, Gilbert blooped a double into shallow centerfield, which set up a two-runsingle by Zach Gibbons to bring Arizona within a run, 5-4.

Arizona threatened an inning later against Lindgren. The lefty gave up a singleto Calhoun, before issuing a two-out walk to Scott Kingery to push the tyingrun into scoring position. But Lindgren struck out Ramer to end the frame.

The Bulldogs added a key insurance run in the home half of the eighth. Wes Readoubled to lead things off and eventually scored on Bradford's groundout toextend the margin to 6-4.

In the ninth, Gilbert singled with one out and moved into scoring position witha passed ball. But Lindgren settled in to strike out both Gibbons and Riley Mooreto end the game and preserve his second save of the season.

Arizona stranded 11 runners on base and went 3-for-17 with runners in scoringposition.

Holder, who went 5.2 in relief, was a big reason why. He had just twostrikeouts, but was able to scattered five hits and two walks while keeping theWildcats off the board for five straight frames.

Schnabel made his first career start for the Wildcats and turned in 5.1 solidinnings despite the loss. He allowed only five hits and one walk.

Gilbert capped a sensational weekend at the plate in the three-day tournament.The junior was 11-for-19 and slugged 1.211 with five doubles, two triples and ahome run. He scored six runs and drove in 10 over the four contests.
