Gamethread! #10 Vanderbilt at Kentucky in a Game 3 Rubber Match

Vanderbilt baseball needs a win in Lexington to take their series with the Kentucky Wildcats and finish 2-2 on the week. Can they sort on the problems on the mound that sunk them in game two?

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Vanderbilt took the win in their opening game in Lexington, but Kentucky battled back on Derby Day to hang an 11-5 loss on Philip Pfeifer and raise more questions about the Vanderbilt rotation. Now it's up to Walker Buehler to right the ship and get the Commodores back to .500 for the week.

Kentucky will be dealing with rotation problems of their own. They had turned to Andrew Nelson on the mound the past two Sundays and got mixed results in a 1-1 showing. Now they'll turn back to Kyle Cody and his 6.35 ERA after using Nelson in relief on Saturday.

We'll be here at noon CST to watch today's rubber match on SECN+. Join us in the comments section to vent all your frustrations about this team's bullpen, baserunning, and more.
