ATHENS, Ga. -- No. 18 Georgia split its Saturday baseball doubleheader with No. 7 Kentucky -- winning 7-6 in the opener before falling 9-8 in Game 2 -- to set up Sunday’s rubber match in the key SEC series.

After Georgia blew a 6-0 lead in the top of the seventh of the opener, Brett DeLoach (3-for-4, two runs, RBI) belted the two-out, go-ahead double in the bottom of the seventh to stake Blake Dieterich to a lead he would protect over the final two scoreless innings.

Georgia staked Game 1 starter Alex Wood to a 6-0 lead before he and reliever Bryan Benzor (4-1) combined to lose the lead. The Wildcats scored four runs in the seventh inning off Wood -- three on a homer by freshman slugger Austin Cousino -- and two more off Benzor to tie the score at 6 by the end of the inning.
