Hewett RBI single, 1-0 Vandy. Vasty 3rd out K's looking on what historically is a ball high. Not this weekend.

Thompson walked the first 2 UK hitters in the 1st. Got the first out on a Sac Bunt before K'Ing the last 2 hitters.

And right on cue, Cats tie it 1-1 on a leadoff HR in bottom 2nd. Sigh...

Thompson strands a runner at 3rd, K's KY leadoff hitter--who's 7-8 with a couple walks this weekend--on a high, hard fastball. Thompson is bulldog, he pitches a little angry. I like that dude!

Diaz leads off the 3rd with a line drive HR to LF. 2-1 Vandy. Austin follows with an oppo-field line drive single. Vandy playing with an edge so far today.

Kozeal not starting?

NVM, just checked stat tracker. Why in heck is he sitting one of the best and hottest hitters in a must win game?

Thompson with a routine 1-2-3 3rd--man, we haven't been able to say that very often this year. However, he's up to around 60 pitches thru 3. Here's hoping Futrell is ready for 3-5 innings today.

Holcomb with a 2-out walk. He's shown real growth. In his first AB today, he swung strike-3 at a curve that started in the zone and broke well into the left hand batters box. At 2-2 in his 2nd AB, the UK pitcher threw the exact same pitch and Holcomb checked his swing and eventually walked. Now he's on 3rd after aggressive baserunning following a Hewett single up the middle. I really hope Holcomb stays and doesn't transfer after the season.
