Kentucky’s pursuit for an SEC Baseball Tournament title begins this week in Hoover, Ala. A date with South Carolina is first on the Wildcats’ agenda.
Kentucky received a first round bye as the No. 3 seed. South Carolina, the No. 11 seed, topped 6th-seed Vanderbilt 7-4 in extra innings Tuesday afternoon to advance to play the Wildcats.
Coach Nick Mingione’s Cats took two of three against South Carolina in their regular season series in Columbia, S.C. Kentucky opened the series with a 19-1 rout.
Kentucky’s 19 SEC wins were the second most in school history, just short of the 20 the 2006 squad recorded. The Cats’ 38 total wins were the most since the 2012 team won a school-record 45 games. Kentucky finished 17-12 against ranked opponents and an even 4-4 against top-10 teams.
The winner of Wednesday’s game will play 5:30 p.m. ET Thursday, while the loser will play at 10:30 a.m. ET on Thursday. Times are subject to change.
