No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats drop close one to Vanderbilt Commodores, 4-3

The Kentucky Wildcats battled back from a three run deficit to tie their game against Vanderbilt in the top of the eight inning, but Vandy got a run in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead and that run was the winning margin as the Commodores defeated Kentucky 4-3 this afternoon.  The Commodore’s standout out freshman, Tyler Beede, held Kentucky scoreless for his seven innings and was in position for the win with a 3-0 lead.  Kentucky jumped on the Vandy bullpen, knotting the score.  It came down to a two out fly ball  by Vandy’s Spencer Navin, which glanced off Cameron Flynn’s glove on a diving attempt.  That went for a triple and drove in the winning run.

Kentucky will go for their seventh straight SEC series win tomorrow in Nashville.  The loss dropped UK to 36-8 overall and 14-6 in the SEC.
