Tennessee baseball looks to get back on track at Kentucky after getting served up a reality check Friday night.
The Vols (26-20, 7-16 SEC) had won seven of nine before the SEC’s Big Blue served them a 15-5 defeat Friday night, providing evidence as to why Kentucky (34-16, 16-9) is ranked No. 8 in the nation.
“Not a good game for the Vols tonight, there’s no other way to put it,” Vols coach Dave Serrano said. “But like I told my guys, a 15-5 loss is no different than a 1-0 loss. A loss is a loss.”
Tennessee was coming off a pair of midweek wins, 14-8 over Belmont and 7-6 over Eastern Kentucky, when it rolled into Lexington for the 3-game set.
Tennessee and Kentucky play at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday before wrapping up the series at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
Both game can be seen via the Internet, as they will be streamed on WatchESPN + SEC Network.
The Vols are one game ahead of Georgia for the 12th and final spot in the upcoming SEC Baseball Tournament. Georgia is hosting No. 9 Mississippi State in Athens this weekend.
