HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Mitch Slauter's two-out single scored Kyle Hann in the 17th inning, giving Mississippi State a 2-1 victory over Missouri Tuesday night in the opening round of the SEC baseball tournament.
The game lasted more than 4 1/2 hours and ended at 12:25 a.m. The 17 innings matched the longest game in tournament history with Auburn-Arkansas in 1994.
Slauter's RBI ended a streak of 11 scoreless innings. Mississippi State (41-16) left a total of 17 runners on base, while Missouri (18-32) stranded 10.
MSU starter Trevor Fitts threw wild pitches to two consecutive batters in the third inning, enabling Brannon Champagne to advance to third.
Champagne then scored on a groundout to give Missouri a 1-0 lead.
The Bulldogs tied the game in the fifth on a two-out single by Hunter Renfroe that drove in Derrick Armstrong.
Will Cox (3-1) gave up one hit over three innings for the victory.
