With eight runs, offense was hardly the problem in today's game. In fact, the Cats scored eight runs in two of the three games against the Gators this series, yet they lost both times. During the fifth inning of Sunday's matchup, Florida's Jacob Young was hit by a pitch with two strikes already on the board, eventually leading to two scores for Florida. In the next inning, a different Gator was hit by a pitch and another one walked. Both moved up on errant pickoff throw.
Kentucky has scored in 108 consecutive games, good for the second-longest offensive streak in school history. And yet their record shows a serious struggle, especially in the SEC - with today's loss, the Wildcats move behind South Carolina in the SEC East and behind Alabama in the overall conference standings.
The Cats will take a few days off for final exams, but they'll return to action Friday, May 3. They'll play Arkansas at home - first pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. and can be seen on the SEC Network+.
