For the first time since 1988, a Kentucky player led the SEC in hits. Kyle Barrett had 82 hits in 2015, including four yesterday to push him over LSU’s Chris Chinea for first in the league. This is only the second time in program history that a Kentucky player has led the league in hits. The last player to do so was Vince Castaldo with 86 hits in 1988. Barrett batted .352 in 2015, good enough for 12th in the league.
Kentucky will take the field on Tuesday at 5:30 E.T against Auburn in the SEC Tournament. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network.
