Kentucky Baseball: Wildcats Win Series at #9 Arkansas, 2-1

Kentucky leads the SEC East and overall after a 2-1 series win at Arkansas.

This weekend, the Kentucky Wildcats baseball team won their first series at Arkansas in 10 years, 2-1. Friday night, Kentucky lost the opener of the series 8-7, but then won the doubleheader on Saturday 5-4 and 2-1 respectively. The Arkansas Razorbacks are the best pitching team in the SEC with a league-leading 2.67 ERA. But the immovable object ran into the irresistible force this weekend as the Wildcats, who lead the SEC in most hitting categories did just enough to overcome the outstanding Hawgs pitching staff with a series total of 14 runs on 26 hits and 3 errors.
