Trailing on the road 1-0 entering the top of the seventh inning, Rachel Lawson’s team refused to quit fighting. It wasn’t easy, but they found a way to win.
The Cats had two outs and a runner on first. An error put another runner on base, setting the stage to drive in the winning run. Abbey Cheek and Brooklin Hinz had a pair of back-to-back RBI liners to give Kentucky two unearned runs for the final margin of victory.
The game ended with a swinging strikeout delivered by Kelsey Nunley. While the BatCats floundered near the finish against UofL, the softball team showed they have ice in their veins to close out the Cards.
