Chris Lemonis and the Mississippi State baseball team are set to get the 2023 SEC season started as they head to Lexington, Kentucky to face off against the Kentucky Wildcats.

Mississippi State has been pretty inconsistent at times so far this season and the Bulldogs are being given a perfect opportunity to get things figured out. But wins against Kentucky definitely aren’t a given this season given how strong the Wildcats look right now.

The Bulldogs desperately need some wins. But how will they perform on the road in this series?

Mississippi State baseball preview: Bulldogs vs. Kentucky Wildcats

Lemonis and the Bulldogs can’t overlook this Kentucky baseball team. The Wildcats have won 11 in a row and look really solid.

3 opposing players to watch

Émilien Pitre

UK is only 17 games into the season, but Émilien Pitre has been incredible and has a .450 batting average so far. He only has one home run, but he’s a really consistent hitter that the Bulldogs will need to account for.

Hunter Gilliam

While Hunter Gilliam‘s batting average isn’t as high as Pitre’s, Gilliam does boast three home runs so far this year. Oh, and he’s still hitting with a .431 batting average. He’s doing alright for himself right now.

Devin Burkes

Like Gilliam, Devin Burkes is a pretty solid hitter. So far this year, Burkes has 23 RBIs and 3 home runs to go with a .324 batting average. That’s something to keep an eye on this weekend.
