More from kentucky baseball

The Kentucky Wildcats Baseball team lost a heart breaker tonight against Number 3 Louisville. The Cats and Cards played an inning of free baseball tonight in Louisville, which in the end the Cards would prevail. The Cats drop to a season record of 25-18 after the 2-1 loss.

The Cats scored early, just like they have been over the past couple of weeks. They would strike first with a single run in the top of the third. Connor Heady led off the action with a single that dribbled over the right side. Kyle Barrett would then smash a single into right field advancing heady to third, where Evan White would drive him in on an RBI single.

The Cats started the sophomore, lefty Logan Salow on the hill versus Louisville. Salow making his second start of the season, and his first since Kentucky used him in a February 22nd game against UC Santa Barbara. Salow only allowed one hit over his four shutout innings of work. Salow was followed up by lefty Dylan Dwyer.


Dwyer also worked four innings for the Bat Cats. Dwyer allowed no hits over the four innings, but did allow the Cards to gain back a run in the ninth. Dwyer struck out three in his four innings of work.

The Cards big ninth inning started by a walk from Dwyer, where he would be replaced by Zach Strecker. Strecker would retire one batter, and be replaced by Spencer Jack. Jack allowed the Cards to get the game tying RBI single they needed.


Now with a 1-1 game going to the 10th, the Cats needed to push across a run early to put pressure on the Cards. But instead the Cards used Zack Burdi to cruise through the Cats lineup.


Logue would start the top half of the 10th after coming in to relieve Spencer Jack in the ninth. Logue would allow a single, but would be followed up by an error that put the game winning run on second base. Robert Ziegler would come into the game for Logue, and allow the walk off single to Blake Tiberi.


The Cats next game will be played on May 1st against the Vanderbilt Commodores at 6:30 PM. The Cats host the Commodores in a three game SEC home series that could turn the tide in the SEC East. The Cats would love for you to come support them at Cliff Hagan Stadium this weekend.
