Get ready to welcome back the Kentucky baseball team as they take on neighbor Indiana on Tuesday in what will be their final showdown before Southeastern Conference play begins on Friday. But be sure to note the change in schedule as the first pitch has been moved up to 4 p.m. ET at the renowned Kentucky Proud Park due to weather considerations.
After a dominant road series sweep at Southern Illinois, the Wildcats, boasting an impressive record of 14-2, are returning home with a boosted RPI ranking. According to WarrenNolan.com, they’ve jumped a staggering 50 spots to sit at No. 16 nationally. With 10 consecutive wins under their belt, this is the longest such single-season streak in the Coach Nick Mingione era.
Senior first baseman Hunter Gilliam is undoubtedly one to watch after being awarded co-Southeastern Conference Player of the Week and one of Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s co-National Players of the Week. His impressive performance in leading the league in hits and runs batted in last week has not gone unnoticed.
With all this momentum, Kentucky is gearing up to take on Indiana and make their mark before SEC play begins. Don’t miss out on this exciting match-up!
