LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky baseball will get a break from ranked opponents as the Wildcats host UT Martin for a midweek matchup.
Kentucky (22-11, 8-4 SEC) is coming off a grueling stretch in the schedule — 13 ranked opponents in its last 15 games.
Coach Nick Mingione’s Cats dropped 3 of 4 games last week, 1 to Louisville and 2 in a weekend series at Mississippi State. But despite the losses, sophomore outfielder Tristan Pompey hit .667 for the week with 3 extra-base hits, 5 runs, 5 RBI and 3 walks. Pompey has hit safely in 20 of his last 22 games. He has 13 multi-hit games in 2017 and 20 for his career.
UT Martin (12-16 overall, 4-11 Ohio Valley Conference) comes to Cliff Hagan Stadium with a losing record, but the Skyhawks are fresh off a 3-game sweep against Morehead State.
Kentucky begins play this week as the No. 14 team in the RPI rankings — the highest of any SEC team. South Carolina, Florida, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and LSU are closely behind the Cats and all in the RPI top 25.
