Still no score as they go to the bottom of the 4th. UK has stranded a man at 2nd base the last two innings.

The bottom of the 4th ends after MSU pushes 2 runs across with the help of a couple of hit batsmen and a timely single. We go to the top of the 5th with the score MSU 2 and UK 0
UK gets a leadoff single but nothing further. We head to the bottom of the 5th, MSU 2 UK 0
A diving catch by Cousino and a heads up play by McCarthy on a ball that hit off the knob of the MSU hitter's bat that rolled into fair territory and UK is out of the 5th.
A single and stolen base by Brian Adams and a double by Maile gets UK on the board but the Cats strand yet another runner in scoring position. We move to the bottom of the 6th MSU 2 UK 1
MSU gets a run across but it could have been worse since they left the bases loaded. UK's pitching has been shaky at best. MSU 3 UK 1 to the top of the 7th.
Cats get runners at 2nd and 3rd with 2 outs but Cousino check-swings and hits a soft liner right back to the pitcher, rally over. Been that kinda night for UK.
UK gets out of the 7th without damage and we're on to the 8th with the score MSU 3 and UK 1. The Cats are running out of time in this one.
Cats go in order in the top of the 8th and it's looking grim for a Cats win tonight.
MSU 3 UK 1 top of the 9th, UK's last chance.
Cats drop the opener to the Bulldogs 3-1.
Well, the Cats really need to scratch out wins in the next two. Backs are against the wall, so to speak, if they want to win the SEC championship.
That guy pitching for MSU is a stud prospect. He's won about every matchup he's had this year, so this doesn't come as a huge surprise. Nothing to worry about if they take care of business in the next two.
