Three more games, three more wins for the Kentucky baseball Cats, this time a series sweep over their first SEC foe, Alabama.
Even the warthogs over at Rivals.com had to let the undefeated 18-0 Wildcats into the rankings this week.
All the major polls now have John Cohen's crew ranked, though where seems to vary on to what degree Kentucky's cake-like early schedule is taken into consideration.
The highest mark comes from Collegiate Baseball Newspaper D-I poll, where Kentucky rocks in at No. 2. The lowest is from Rivals, who has the Wildcats at No. 18, after not ranking them previously. A few others chime in at No. 11 (USA Today/ESPN), at No. 16 (baseball America), and at 12 (NCBWA).
UK is led by senior sensation Sawyer Carroll, who is raking at an unbelievable .532 clip with 7 homers and 32 RBIs, a stupid 1.032 slugging percentage and a Bonds-like .634 OBP (let's hope that's where Bonds comparisons end, eh?).
The staff ERA is a lowly 2.08, led by senior Greg Dombrowski (4-0, 1.27) and junior Scott Green (2-0, 1.64, 33-3 K/BB).
The Cats are back on the diamond this Tuesday, hosting the Morehead State Eagles at 4 p.m. ET from Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington.
