Kolten Smith will start as the Georgia Bulldogs' pitcher against NC State on Saturday. The right-handed sophomore has a 9-2 record this season and has racked up 99 strikeouts and 15 walks in 65.1 innings pitched.

It will be interesting to see if the Bulldogs also use Leighton Finley (5-1, 4.41 ERA, 1 SV, 71K, 26BB, 69.1 IP) or Zach Harris (5-1, 6.69 ERA, 42K, 18BB, 35 IP) later in the game.

Earlier this week, Georgia head coach Wes Johnson told reporters that his team's pitchers share similarities to the pitching lineup at NC State.

"I think we're pretty evenly matched. They've got some really good bats, they've been playing exceptionally well probably their last four or five weeks now. Their pitchers are similar to ours, their offense, their defense. You look at this one, we're pretty evenly matched, in my opinion." Johnson said.

Meanwhile, NC State will start with Sam Highfill in Game 1 of the series against Georgia. The graduate has a 6-2 record and a 5.35 ERA this season.
