UK Baseball takes a Bad Loss to EKU




UK took a 4-0 early lead in the midweek game against EKU, but once again couldn’t seal the deal, falling to the Colonels 5-4.  It’s EKU’s first win over Kentucky since 1999.

UK has struggled in midweek non-conference games all season.  It’s even worse against teams from the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  The BatCats are 2-5 with losses to NKU, WKU, EKU and two losses to UofL.  Their only wins against Kentucky schools came against Morehead State and Murray State.

I’m not the one saying Gary Henderson is sitting on a hot seat, but there are plenty of fans that would say he’s got to go.

    I haven’t been very pleased with the results of Gary Henderson during his tenure. He’s missed out on a lot of in-state talent to Louisville and to WKU. I would love to see a new coach. With that said, Barnhart doesn’t care about UK baseball — and not a lot the BBN does, either — so we’re in for the status quo long-haul.

      Henderson’s record is light years better than Stoops, yet you approve of Stoop’s $10,000.00/day base salary?

    His coaching record is simply unacceptable, especially against mediocre out of conference foes year after year.

    Henderson seems to be a good guy, but he’s a pitching coach in a hitters game. I watched the game last night, and EKU hitters were the more disciplined (against pitching with superior velocity to EKU), and went to all fields. UK has talent-but what do they do with it? Shelby will play pro ball, and may play a long time if he ever stops trying to pull every pitch. UK had baserunners late in the game, but couldn’t do anything with them (sounds familiar). Obviously they don’t get that fired up to play the in-state teams, and that may be part of their problem-because those teams are fired up to play them.
