Starkville Super Regional Prediction

Stanford survived a regional game 2 loss to Fresno State and subsequently advanced to a Super Regional. Now they get to play in the sauna weather at Starkville, Miss. The Cardinal has a slight edge in pitching and fielding while the Bulldogs are the better batting team. State, with players like Jake Mangum, should be able to win this one in raucous Dudy Noble Stadium. Mississippi State 2 wins, Stanford 1 win.
