UK Baseball leads nation in scoring

Some brief notes for readers on this rainy and/or snow afternoon.


The Kentucky baseball team leads the nation in runs scored per game as of this past weekend. Their 10.3 runs per game leads the nation in scoring. Last Friday, the Wildcats put up over 20 runs on the board.

The Wildcats were originally scheduled to play Cincinnati at Cliff Hagan Stadium but due to the rain this afternoon, that game has been postponed.

Kentucky (10-1) will return to action on Wednesday, hosting Xavier at 4 p.m. ET at Cliff Hagan Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on the UK IMG Radio Network, with Dick Gabriel voicing the action. Fans in Lexington can hear the game live on WWTF 1580-AM and online at UKathletics.com.

Former Wildcat pitcher Alex Meyer pitched two scoreless innings in his spring debut against the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday as the Minnesota Twins went on to win the game 7-0. Meyer faced 6 batters, giving up 2 walks. The quality of the opposition faced is at a level between AAA and Major League. It’s not too shabby for the 2011 first round draft pick.

Julius Randle will be making his college selection on ESPNU on March 20th. Kentucky is one of his few remaining choices as he comes to a final decision. The Wildcats are the likely destination for the Texas power forward but you never know what will happen.

On Selection Sunday, Turner Sports will debut a documentary on the Kentucky Wildcats on TruTV at 8 PM. Bluegrass Kingdom: The Gospel of Kentucky Basketball will be narrated by Drake and will feature interviews with Ashley Judd, Pat Riley, Jamal Mashburn, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, coaches Joe B. Hall and John Calipari.
