After outscoring the Bulldogs 23-0 in the first two games of the series, the Kentucky Wildcat’s baseball team lost an 11-10 game at Georgia earlier this evening. The Cats were down by eight runs in the eighth inning, but rallied behind a home run from A.J. Reed (who leads the NCAA in homers) and a grand-slam from senior Matt Reida to make the game a close contest. Kentucky came up short in their bid to make history, but was able to win their second consecutive series this weekend and clinch an SEC tournament for the third straight year with the series win.

The Cats will resume play at the start of the SEC tournament this Tuesday, May 20th.

    Well done, Mr Reed, what a season you turned in. Any readers know if a Kentucky player has ever finished the season leading the NCAA in home runs?

    Not because of this game, but I think Gary Henderson has underachieved a bit….
