Why Kentucky Will POP in 2024

Kentucky’s first-ever game in Omaha at the College World Series did not disappoint. After falling behind for the first time of the game in the ninth inning against NC State, the middle of Kentucky’s lineup decided to save the day with a pair of clutch home runs.

Ryan Nicholson tied the game with a solo shot in the night. Kentucky won the game in the 10th.

The final knock came from Mitchell Daly with two outs to advance Kentucky into the winner’s bracket of the 2024 College World Series. The Bats Cats refused to lose at Charles Schwab Field.

After the dramatic victory, Nick Mingione, Mitchell Daly, Ryan Nicholson, and Trey Pooser met with media members to discuss the big win.

“Just when you guys thought it couldn’t get better. To God be the glory. What a game. What a game,” Mingione said. “Both teams, give NC State a lot of credit. That’s an amazing team.”

“Just two teams just duking it out and taking advantage of opportunities. And just so thankful for our players, our fans. Our fans were amazing.”
