The Bat Cats defeated Alabama 5-2 to avoid the sweep in Tuscaloosa.
The Cats were down 2-0 early, but battled back. Kole Cottam got it started for Kentucky with a home run in the top of the 2nd and the Cats never looked back.

Justin Lewis got the start for the Cats today and Chris Machamer finished. Machamer came in during the bottom of the 8th and needed five outs to seal the win, and that’s exactly what he did.
Kentucky needed the W heading into Tuesday’s game against Louisville. Tuesday’s game is in Lexington and first pitch is at 6:30.
