The Bat Cats started off the season with a bang with a win over #1 Virginia and have since went on to improve to a 10-2 record. The only two losses of the season came both on the road and at a neutral location. VMI and USC Upstate are the only two teams to defeat the Cats this season. The Bat Cats will take the field again as part of a three-game series verse Ball State starting March 7-9. First pitch for the March 7 game will be thrown at 4:00PM EST.
Currently the Bat Cats lead the Bearcats and look to improve to 11-2 as try to close out the game.
A Kyle Barrett single with 2 outs and 2 strikes gives #UKbaseball a 9-0 lead. Barrett has a 15 game hit streak now.
