College World Series: Westburg has 7 RBI as Mississippi State beats North Carolina 12-2

Source: NCAA Source: NCAA

Fitting that King Banana would have a big impact for the team known for the Rally Banana. Jordan Westburg’s grand slam in the 2nd inning gave Mississippi State the lead. The Bulldogs would use an 8-run 8th to beat North Carolina 12-2.

Westburg capped a 7 RBI afternoon with a 3-run double in the 8th. He tied the CWS record for most RBI in a game.

Rowdey Jordan started the big inning with a bloop single. Tanner Allen, Hunter Stovall, & Luke Alexander also had RBIs Tuesday.

The win means MSU gets 2 days off & advances to the Bracket 1 Final. The Bulldogs only need 1 win to advance to the CWS Finals. You can watch MSU postgame reaction below.
