No. 11 Kentucky Returns Home After Road Stretch


No. 11 Kentucky returns to Kentucky Proud Park on Tuesday evening after acquitting itself well at top-ranked LSU over the weekend. The Wildcats will host Xavier at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The Wildcats (28-7) and Musketeers (22-14) faced each other last fall in an exhibition game, which UK won 11-6.

UK was soundly beaten by LSU in the series opener but rebounded to win game two and took game three to the wire before falling by a single run. UK has the second-most RPI top 100 wins in the nation (20) and the most top 50 (16) and top 25 (13) RPI victories. It remains No. 1 in the RPI and owns the second-most difficult schedule.

Redshirt freshman Travis Smith will be pitching for the first time since April 4 vs. Dayton after last week’s game at Louisville was postponed.
