Leading Off...

In an abbreviated slate, No. 16 Georgia defeated No. 18 Kentucky on Monday in the only game of the day. The Bulldogs won 3-1 over the Wildcats as the ‘Dawgs were able to keep Kentucky off the board for the most part through their seven innings of action. Georgia put up their runs in the first, second and fifth while UK could only muster up a run in the sixth in an otherwise barren set of frames


Today’s Schedule

(All games available via WatchESPN)

Gardner-Webb vs. South Carolina - 4 p.m. ET, SEC Network+

Arkansas vs. Missouri State - 6 p.m. ET, ESPN3

Nicholls vs. LSU - 7 p.m. ET, SEC Network+

Only three games are on the docket on Tuesday. League-leading hitter Bailey Landry and the LSU Tigers will face off with Nicholls in the final game of the day. Landry’s hitting .529 thus far this season, setting the pace and keeping an edge over the likes of Elantra Cox and Sydni Emanuel, each of whom are hitting over .500.

Nicole Schroeder of Arkansas is also one of the league’s best hitters, and she and her Arkansas Razorbacks face off with Missouri State at 6 p.m. Schroeder’s average is at .464, but what’s most impressive is her slugging percentage, as she’s posted a mark of 1.130 (!!) through 27 games. It’s especially impressive when you consider that almost nobody is in her stratosphere, with the next closest mark among hitters hitting at least .400 being Tennessee’s Meghan Gregg, who has a slugging percentage of .821. Schroeder has hit 12 dingers and 21 total extra-base hits, and is certainly one of the reasons that Arkansas finds themselves in the Top 25.

Finally, Krystan White and the South Carolina Gamecocks square off with Gardner-Webb in Tuesday’s first game of the day. The Gamecocks have gotten off to a dismal start in conference play with a 1-5 mark against their SEC opponents. They were able to hit the Vols with a 9-1 win last Friday, but have since lost five in a row to UT and the Florida Gators, who swept them over the weekend. This matchup against GW will serve as a tuneup for a roadtrip to Tuscaloosa, where the Alabama Crimson Tide await them. For their sake, the Gamecocks use this as an opportunity to spring back up and carry some confidence with them against the Tide later this week.
