One win down, two to go.
Kentucky beat Florida 12-4 in Game 1 of a surprisingly pivotal SEC season finale. The Wildcats — now in a 3-way tie atop the SEC at 19-9 — need a sweep to ensure at least a share of the SEC regular-season championship.
They came out motivated to do just that on Thursday, pummeling Florida star pitcher Alex Faedo for 7 runs in 5.1 innings, erasing an early 3-0 deficit en route to a dominating win.
Game 2 begins on Friday night, and all the details for fans are below.
