No. 17 Kentucky Takes on Texas A&M Beginning Friday
LEXINGTON, Ky. – After concluding a four-game homestand, Kentucky hits the road for the final time of the 2021 regular season this weekend as it flies south to face the Texas A&M Aggies for a three-game Southeastern Conference series at Davis Diamond in Bryan-College Station, Texas.
All three games of the series will be available on the SEC Network+, ESPN3 and the ESPN app. Live stats will also be available on 12thman.com through Texas A&M.
Kentucky enters the weekend at No. 17 in both the National Fastpitch Coaches’ Association Top-25 poll and the USA Softball ESPN/com top-25 rankings. Texas A&M has fluttered in and out of the polls all season, but is currently not ranked by either outlet.
Kayla Kowalik leads the Wildcats back to her home state this weekend as she is hitting .526 on the season with 12 home runs and 35 RBI. Kowalik’s last game saw the end of her hitting streak, as it lasted a program-record 23 games before LSU snapped in on Sunday, April 25.
In the circle, Grace Baalman had UK’s only win against LSU as she went 2.2 scoreless innings in the circle. Autumn Humes is 15-6 on the season with a 2.49 ERA.
