We have our work cut out for us this weekend but today’s game is the real challenge.
Kentucky is #7 in the country and is throwing 6’11" phenom Sean Hjelle (SEC Pitcher of the year and 2-0, 0.66 ERA and .065 BAA - not a misprint). He’s the best pitcher we’ll see all year. Wildcats are hitting .324 and have 16 homers already.
We throw Cumbie who is as hard-luck as you can get. He’s 3rd in the country in K:BB ratio and 8th in strikeouts but without a decision.
Miss State is finishing a 9-game road trip and have already fired their coach. They’ve struggled so far this year. And Vanderbilt is hitting .352and 7 starters have an OBP of .460 or higher. They are averaging almost 10 runs a game.
