5 for Sunday: Kentucky Baseball Going for Series Win


It’s a nice Sunday morning for Big Blue Nation.

Cliff Hagan Stadium is sure to be a packed house for the final game of the three-game weekend series against the Louisiana State Tigers.  sophomore left-hander Corey Littrell (6-0, 1.95 ERA) will take the mound to face off against LSU freshman right-hander Aaron Nola (5-1, 3.15 ERA).  The Kentucky Wildcats and LSU Tigers have split the series so far with 1 game a piece.  Unlike the other two games this weekend, this game will not be televised.

The autograph tour continues for the Farewell 5 (or should I say 7).  Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be signing items at the Cardboard Heroes located at The Mall of Florence in Florence, KY.  The autograph ticket is $60.  Meanwhile, both Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb will be at Cardboard Heroes at the Mall at St. Matthews from 12:30-2:30 PM.  Autograph tickets are $25 a piece or $40 if you have them sign the same object.   Darius Miller will be signing from 3:30-5:30 PM at the same site in Louisville.  Teague and Lamb will be in Florence signing from 4-6 PM.

In men’s tennis action, the UK squad advanced to the SEC finals for the second season in a row.  The Cats (26-4) are on an 11 game winning streak.  The Cats will take on Georgia at 2 PM.

In a game nationally televised yesterday on ESPNU, the Kentucky softball team fell in extra innings to Mississippi State.  The Wildcats are now 23-35 on the season and 10-11 in SEC action.  The final game of the series is Sunday at 2 PM.

Here’s something you don’t see every day.  Nerlens Noel, the incoming Freshman, was in Lexingt0n for his official visit.  In addition to stopping by the Blue-White game, Noel stopped by the Henry Clay prom.
