Instead of bouncing back from yesterday’s nail-biting 10-9 loss, the baseball team suffered another setback today. Heading into today’s game against the Volunteers, the series was tied at one a-piece. Tennessee shutout the #14 Cats 5-0 today, thus taking the three game series 2-1. UT pitcher Zack Godley threw 130 pitches and gave up only six hits in picking up the complete game shutout win.
The squad now sits with a record of 24-11 overall, 7-8 in SEC play. While it is very unfortunate to see the ranked UK baseball team stumbling after dropping a series to LSU last week, there is certainly still hope – and it may come in the form of a football coach who is riding a heater. According to UK Athletics, Mark Stoops will be throwing out the first pitch against Louisville on Tuesday. The fearless football leader takes the mound around 6:30 PM that evening when the game gets underway.
