    Given the already-thin pitching staff, I hope the storms/rain hold off long enough for them to get this game in without major delay. Last thing this team needs is a 2-hour delay after Harper has warmed and thrown an inning plus.

    Are we getting Lewis back at any point if we make it further or into a regional?

    Depends on how his arm responds to ongoing treatment. They think it's just tendinitis type swelling going on that required rest.

    Supposedly for a regional or if we make a deep SEC run. 5 pitchers unavailable today.

    Scary thought: UK chases this Auburn pitcher early and they bring in some dude that deals 0s for 4-5 innings.

    Sigh. UK continues to give away outs on the basepaths. SMH

    Dummy short stop shouldn't be in the base path.

    I've seen bad Little League teams make less mistakes on the base path. I don't get it.

    Our base running has become comical. And the runners are thrown out by a mile. And yet Ming continues to do it over and over. Stupidity.

    That is the 25th time that we have been caught stealing in 56 games. Cannot give away outs & expect to win.

    Heck might as well run there or try. Get to first and third and with Squires and the bottom half struggling you might as well try to get RISP.

    Yeah and the announcers are saying it's the runners fault.

    Why can't people take into consideration that we have NOT had our rotation healthy all year in the SEC..

    Auburn's Will Holland leads off with a HR for the Tigers. UK 1, AUB 1 - B1

    Yep. You run the risk if you are literally standing right in the base and the runner can get there no other way.

    Not a terrible spot height wise. Not far enough inside on that pitch though. It's that which kills us. Every mistake is killed. Seems like opposing hitters never miss them.

    Good lord, this team just never plays a clean game and it's almost impossible to watch a game without being completely frustrated.

    Great start with Kottam HR and then a silly base running error (shocking) and then a HR given up to first batter.

    Hard to get the team feeling good about itself when there seems to be disaster around every corner.

    Why didn't ZT start today? Is he hurt again? I don't remember him pitching against Vandy. I missed the first part of the game we was up 6-3

    He pitched on Saturday. Too short of a rest to go again.

    Scary first inning for Harper. A lot of hard-hit balls there.

    Will Holland will probably have a career day against us and they will play up this stupid spiked thing.

    Will Holland was a former Kentucky commit before signing with Auburn.

    Not sure why Lewis is DH. Just doesn't make sense to me why Johnson or someone who can mash isn't in. Lewis grounds out weakly to short.
