UK Baseball falls at Florida, loses series and SEC crown

Kentucky needed to win two of three in the series at Florida this weekend to win the SEC title, but it fell short of that goal, dropping each of the last two games after taking the first on Thursday.

In today’s third and final game of the series, a must-win for the Cats, a blown lead and several missed opportunities with runners on base cost Kentucky its shot at the prize. Florida won the game, the series and a share of the SEC regular season crown with a 6-4 win.

Though the loss stings, the regular season as a whole far exceeded expectations. Kentucky finishes the season at 38-18 and 19-11 in conference play, and will be the No. 3 seed in the SEC tournament.

Trey Huntsman will have more in a bit…

    The Cats lost an entire inning’s worth of outs with 2 stooopid base running errors early and a bad call by the ump at 1st base that would have given us bases loaded w 1 out instead of men on 2nd and 3rd w 2 outs. It happens, but 2 errors and 9 left on base makes it tough to beat good teams…hope for good luck next week in Hoover and it would be great to secure a top 8 national seed..GO CATS!

  3. Whatever happens in Hoover, the future looks bright for UK baseball, with such a young coach turning this program around so much and quickly.

    GO BAT CATS!!!
