Kentucky Baseball Drops Series to Florida

Photo via UKAthletics.com

Fresh off dropping a series to Vanderbilt in Nashville, the #3 Bat Cats dropped only their second series this season at home to Florida.  The series was officially lost yesterday 5-1, after UK allowed four runs in the last two innings to let Florida break away from a 1-1 tie.

Kentucky did manage to salvage at least one game, beating the Gators 2-1 today off of only seven hits in twenty-eight at bats.  So it wasn’t a total loss.

The series will likely have a big impact in the SEC, with both schools ranked in the Top 10 nationally going into the weekend.  Expect to see a strong rebound this Wednesday, 5/9, when the Cats head to Bloomington to tackle the Hoosiers, who are currently unranked.

After IU takes their inevitable shellacking, Kentucky will finish off conference play with a series at home against Alabama, then at Mississippi State.  Be sure to get out to Cliff Hagan Stadium while you can in the next couple weeks to catch the tail end of what’s been a great season so far.

    I have searched the internet over and googled and everything I can think of to find out when the NBA is holding their draft lottery. Does anybody know?? I am just curious where AD will be going.

    2- It’s actually a “wait and see” on the specific date from NBA. I bring up espn every day now and wait.

    Here is what NBA.com has…
    May (Date TBD) NBA Draft Lottery held, determines the selection order for the 2012 NBA Draft

    2 & 3 – I’ve read both TBA and May 30. I hope KSR analyzes the s*** out of the Drat given we could have 6 first rounders.

    4…Yes, the potential of 6 is the big news here. Agreed.

    Darius Miller has NO shot at going in the first round, none. The odds of him going in round one are the same as Corey Nichols becoming a good writer.

    8 – Even if he goes in 2nd round we have something called the Kentucky Effect, which means he’ll be a contributor by the end of his rookie season. Just ask Meeks, Jorts, and DeAndre.
