Georgia-Kentucky Prediction

Georgia is a baseball program that has steadily been on the rise for the past couple seasons. They are now a contender in the East. Meanwhile Kentucky is in rebuild mold after graduating numerous key players from last season’s hard hitting team. Look for Georgia to win this series but Kentucky should get their first SEC win ever in their new baseball venue. Georgia 2 wins, Kentucky 1 win.
