LEXINGTON, Ky. — Brock Wright, Kevin Carby, and Scott Davis each drove in two runs to lead the Kentucky Black squad to a 12-1 win over the UK Blue team, in game one of the annual Kentucky Baseball Fall World Series, held Friday evening at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

The Fall World Series is an annual intrasquad scrimmage used to wrap up the fall practice season. The series consists of seven, seven-inning games between teams drafted by the UK four-year veterans.

Sophomore right hander Clint Tilford got the start for Black, picking up the win after working four predetermined innings, allowing five hits and no earned runs. The lone blemish for Tilford came after a first-inning outfield error allowed Blue?s lone run to score. Junior right hander Jonathan Huff followed Tilford, toiling three scoreless innings, allowing only one hit to pick up the save. On the bump for Blue, senior right hander Aaron Lovett earned the starting nod, hurling 3 1/3 innings, allowing four runs, and striking out five. Freshman Seth McCabe relieved Lovett, working 2 2/3 innings, before giving way to junior southpaw Jesse Yano.

Providing the biggest pop in the Black lineup was sophomore Western Kentucky transfer Troy Frazier. The outfielder from Louisville, Ky., finished the day 2-for-3 with three runs scored, one RBI, and one walk. Frazier, who lead WKU in batting last season with a .327 average (3 HR, 25 RBI), started the game in centerfield, hitting sixth in the lineup.

Wright, batting leadoff and playing left field for Black, finished the evening 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run double. Carby, a junior college transfer, batted 1-for-2 with a two-run double in the fourth inning. Freshman Scott Davis relieved Carby at second base mid-way through the contest and ended up batting 2-for-2 with two runs scored on a double down the left field line.

Offensively for the Blue, Keenan Wiley (So., OF), Brian Spear (Sr., INF/C), Bryan Rose (R-Fr., OF), Spencer Korus (Jr., INF), Chris Bisson (Fr., INF), and Dan Killian (Fr., C) each tallied hits. Spear, who set the school record for walks in a season in 2007, drove in the Blue?s lone run in the first inning. Wiley and Bisson each notched walks, with Ryan Wilkes, T. J. Daugherty, and Rose each contributing to Blue?s eight walks on the night.

Game two of the series resumes on Saturday morning with a 9 a.m. EDT first pitch at Cliff Hagan Stadium. Game times are tentative and subject to change.
