Konnor Pilkington, TBA, TBA in MSU Super Regional rotation

STARKVILLE, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Head coach Andy Cannizaro announced that Konnor Pilkington will start Game 1 vs. LSU on Saturday night. The sophomore ace began MSU's stretch of 4 wins in 2 days. Pilkington tossed 7 innings against Illinois-Chicago and struck out 9 on Sunday.

Coach says a fan favorite is back in the rotation.

"And then from there it'll just be TBA. And I think everybody that has followed our team knows who the pool of candidates are going to be. It will either be Denver McQuary, it will either be Jacob Billingsley, Cole Gordon is certainly going to get back out on the mound this weekend. It'll probably be one of those guys that are going to be taking the ball. At some point, all of those guys are going to pitch this weekend."

Konnor made more news on Wednesday, being named to the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team. He's locked in for the Bayou Bengals at The Box.

"We have a lot going for us. We got a lot of vengence from LSU coming in here and sweeping us at home. So if we can go down there with enough heart and pride and overcome the crowd and everything, I feel like we can pull 2 out."

Mississippi State and LSU open their Super Regional series on Saturday. The schedule is below.

Jeff Barker will be in Baton Rouge covering the Bulldogs. You can follow him on twitter and facebook.
