The Rundown for SEC Baseball: February 27

A full slate is awaiting us today.

Let’s get right down to business, shall we?

At 4 p.m., three games will be going down. Arkansas hosts Memphis, Kentucky plays Northern Kentucky and Alabama will battle North Alabama. These three oppositions for the teams of the SEC are a combined 4-15, with the Norse standing at 0-6 entering play against UK. In other words, these games should be pretty easy for the Hogs, Wildcats and Crimson Tide to handle.

After clearing out Liberty on Tuesday, Tennessee will face the 4-3 Middle Tennessee BLue Raiders at 4:30 ET. The Vols are 8-0 now after the defeat of the Flames, and continue to own in the run differential department. They’ve allowed just 5 runs all season and have scored a gaudy 57 after their 7-1 win on Tuesday.

Georgia sets their sights on Kennesaw State at 5 as the Dawgs host the Owls in Athens. UGA is hoping to rebound after losing 1-0 to LIU Brooklyn on Tuesday, their first loss of the young season. Kennesaw State is 4-2 on the year and could provide UGA with a tough test if they’re not careful.

Having defeated SE Missouri State on Tuesday, the Vanderbilt Commodores will look to do the same to visiting Austin Peay on Wednesday. The ‘Dores got big production from Austin Martin and JJ Bleday in the win, as they each clubbed homers. Martin’s was a solo shot in the first inning, while Bleday’s was a two-run bomb in the second.

At 6 p.m., Florida will face off with UCF. The Gators held Jacksonville off in a 5-4 win in extras on Tuesday. Things were a little bit skittish for them, but Jud Fabian came up with a clutch go-ahead double in the top of the 10th inning. Hopefully for the Gators, less theatrics and drama will be needed to ensure a win on Wednesday.

A half hour later, Mississippi State is in action against SE Louisiana. The Bulldogs routed Jackson State to the tune of a 17-4 blowout on Tuesday. Justin Foscue hit a two-run homer in the third inning and so did Marshall Gilbert. Eight different Bulldog batters drove in runs in the victory. Will a similar offensive output await them Wednesday?

Finally, at 7:30, two games will go down as LSU hosts Southern while Texas A&M plays Incarnate Word. LSU couldn’t play on Tuesday as their game got washed out, while A&M smacked Houston Baptist around for a 12-5 win. Five different Aggie batters drove in runs, including Logan Foster, who drove in a game-high three runs.
