Kentucky-Texas A&M Series Prediction

Texas A&M travels to the Blue Grass state to face the Wildcats. A&M has slightly better pitching than UK while Kentucky has been a little better than A&M batting. These two squads are about equal. I think playing at Blue Bell Park will sway this series in A&M’s favor.

Texas A&M 2 wins, Kentucky 1 win
