BatCats Survive Elimination Game Against NC State

UK Athletics

UK Athletics

Kentucky knocked off NC State 8-6 on Sunday night to stave off elimination once again. After beating Indiana earlier this afternoon, UK fought off the Wolfpack to force a winner-take-all game on Monday night.

The BatCats used a four-run sixth inning to propel them to a win in their second elimination game of the day. RBI singles from Luke Becker and Zach Reks sent Cliff Hagan Stadium into a frenzy during the sixth.

Marcus Carson hit his second home run of the day and Tristan Pompey went 3/5 with two runs scored in the win.


UK and NC State will face off once again tomorrow night at 7 ET. We will have more on this game on KSR tonight. Follow @TreyHuntsmanKSR for updates from the press conference and Cliff Hagan Stadium.

      Bush league move by NC State coach complaining to ump about Salow.
      If I had been Mingione, I would have demanded ump check NC State’s pitcher’s cap for foreign substance in the bottom of the inning.

    KSR, I love you. I really do. I read you every day. But I have a suggestion. Change your name. You care about one thing: basketball. That’s fine. Just own it. This baseball team and this coach deserves attention. The SEC coach of the year! He’s an incredible coach and even greater human being. Yet, you treat the baseball team like an irrelevant aspect of the KY sports program. They play tomorrow to advance and you merely give them a token consideration? Come on. Brand yourself has a KY basketball site or actually get interested in other sports at UK. This baseball team is having an epic season. It would be nice if you actually cared about them and not just making a living on the basketball team.

      I don’t know what you’re talking about; KSR has covered the baseball team all weekend…and Trey has covered them all season.

      What are you talking about? They’ve covered the baseball team all season here, as well as many other sports. The author of this article is their Kentucky baseball reporter – it’s right in his profile description on this article.

      I second this! You guys are stepping up and reporting, but not quite like the baseball fans would like. Just face it, there is a high demand for baseball and you guys should take advantage of tha. They deserve better exposure right now, these players are fighting. The coach is a flat out winner and definitely is a HELL of a coach!

      Not every fan knows how to use a podcast, all people are saying is treat the success of the baseball program with the same level of interest as the basketball and football team. The players deserve it, they dont get that much exposure as a individual and yesterday there was not one article dedicated to show what time the game was or channel it was on. This is a great time to get behind this team and blast this site today with some hype damnit, we want to see this team move on and play the Cards for a hell of a series!

      There wasn’t an article because not even UK knew what channel we are on. We have had recaps for almost every game, feature articles, podcasts, everything.

    If we lose to NC State it would mean football,basketball, and baseball all end their season with a loss to an ACC team.
