After coming back from being down 0-1 in the series, the Wildcats took down the #1 LSU Tigers in a 2-1 comeback series home stand. The Bat Cats are now #2 in the country behind #1 Florida State, according to Baseball America.
The ‘Cats were off today and will head 82 miles up the road tomorrow to meet the Louisville Cardinals. UofL blew out Kentucky during their first meeting in Lexington, 12-0. UK sits atop the SEC while Louisville is a game back from first in the Big East.
Since this is not a conference game, it doesn’t mean that much at all. But put in the pride factor of getting blown out during the first meeting and the rival factor, this is a big game. No way does this team want to go 0-2 to the Dirty Birds this year.
