We are back for one last season recap Spartan fans! As you all know from the previous post about the offense â?? Michigan State’s season didn’t end well at all.

Unable to get a B1G Tournament invite they now move on to the off-season much to soon for anyone’s liking. Not only did they finish the year 29-23 with a 10-14 conference mark â?? MSU also lost the last game of the season to their rival Michigan on senior day.

Now that we have gone through the season from an offensive perspective it’s time to switch gears towards the other side of the ball.

The Good

The good represents the end of the season for the Michigan State pitching staff.

Throughout the year the Spartans let up their fair share of runs but during the home stretch of 2017 (last month of the season) â?? MSU really managed to reel it in and throw quality games.

During the last month of this year they played three top five teams in the conference who were in the running for the B1G title. Those included Iowa, Nebraska, and Michigan respectively. The Spartans didn’t win any of those series but the pitchers did what they were supposed to.

By keeping the games close (out of nine games, only two were completely out of reach) the guys on the mound gave their offense a fighting chance every time out.

  • 5/5 â?? Iowa, L 2-3
  • 5/6 â?? Iowa, W 2-1
  • 5/7 â?? Iowa, L 4-9
  • 5/12 â?? Nebraska, W 6-3
  • 5/13 â?? Nebraska, L 2-5
