We now take a break from draft drama to check in on the UK Baseball team, which is coming off one heck of a week. After knocking off #2 Louisville (1-0) and #8 LSU (2-1), the Bat Cats jumped from #10 to #6 in D1 Baseball’s weekly poll, one of the most prominent baseball polls (because there are a lot). Sixth is pretty impressive for a program most assumed would be in rebuilding mode in Nick Mingione’s first year as head coach.
If you’re curious about the differences between all five baseball polls, have no fear; one of the guys behind the D1 Baseball poll is coming on our own KSR Baseball Podcast soon to break down the criteria with Trey Huntsman and Keith Madison. In the meantime, enjoy the highlights of UK’s rout of LSU to win the series yesterday:
