Logue fans 11 as UK evens series at a game apiece.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky bounced back from a disappointing series opener against Georgia to post a 7-4 victory over the Bulldogs on Saturday in the second game of a weekend series at Cliff Hagan Stadium. 

Junior left-hander Zach Logue (6-4) held the Bulldogs to four runs on five hits over 6.2 innings, setting a new career high with 11 strikeouts. 

Troy Squires, a junior catcher, provided the offensive fireworks with a pair of doubles and four RBI to lead No. 4 Kentucky (32-15, 15-8 SEC). Tristan Pompey and Evan White each added two hits for the Wildcats. 

Zack Thompson struck out five UGA batters over the final 2.1 innings to record the save, his first of the season for the freshman southpaw. 

It was an error-free night for the Cats a day after committing two miscues in the ninth inning, paving the way to four unearned runs in a 5-3 win by the Bulldogs.

Chase Adkins started and took the loss for Georgia (18-29, 6-17 SEC). He allowed six runs on eight hits before exiting in the fifth inning. 

Tucker Maxwell and Mitchell Webb each homered for the Bulldogs, but the visitors managed only three additional hits on the night.
