College World Series Game 3 (6/30/21) Free Live Stream: How to Watch Mississippi State vs. Vanderbilt
The College World Series will come down to one final night on Wednesday in Omaha, Nebraska.
Vanderbilt and Mississippi State will meet in Game 3 at 7 p.m. ET on June 30 on ESPN 2. The winner will be the NCAA Division I baseball champion.
Neither of the first two games of the series came close. A seven-point first inning propelled defending champions Vanderbilt to an 8-2 win in Game 1 on Monday before Mississippi State responded in Game 2 on Tuesday with its own offensive explosion.
The Bulldogs’ nine starting position had at least one hit in a 13-2 win, and shortstop Lane Forsythe, the No.9 hitter, had three singles, a high in the match. Houston Harding pitched the first four innings for Mississippi State and Preston Johnson finished the game with five solid innings to keep the Commodores out of reach.
Vanderbilt won the NCAA Championship in 2019, the baseball program’s first crown since 2014. And the coronavirus resulted in the cancellation of last year’s College World Series, so they’ve held the title for 24 months.
The state of Mississippi, on the other hand, has never won an NCAA Division I championship in baseball – or any team sport, for that matter. So while the Commodores are far from becoming the first College World Series Champions in a decade, the Bulldogs are at the dawn of school history.
