Kentucky Baseball: Wildcats vs. Florida Gators 3-game Series Begins Tonight

Well, I forgot to check the baseball schedule. After UK dropped a heartbreaking series last weekend at Vanderbilt, they welcome the Florida Gators to town tonight for a huge series between two of the SEC East's top three clubs. From UKAthletics.com:

The third-ranked Kentucky Wildcats will return to action in a crucial three-game series with conference-title implications, hosting No. 5 Florida, with the opener set for Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET at Cliff Hagan Stadium as the ESPNU SEC Game of the Week. The series will resume at 7 p.m. ET on Friday and conclude on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

All three games will be televised, with the Thursday opener the weekly ESPNU SEC Game of the Week, with ESPN's standout team of Dave Neal (play-by-play), former Stanford star pitcher Kyle Peterson (color) and former Florida softball star Jenn Brown (sideline). The Saturday game will be televised on CSS, with Matt Stewart and Joe Beckwith calling the game. On Sunday, Florida's team of Mick Hubert and former Gary Henderson pitcher while at Florida Jeff Cardozo, will call the game for Fox Sports Florida and Sun Sports.

The Wildcats are currently tied with the South Carolina Gamecocks at 14-7 in the SEC East. Florida is just behind at 12-9, and could take over second or even first place with a strong showing against Kentucky.

It's a bit unusual for the series to begin on Thursday, so that's why I overlooked it. Kentucky needs a big showing this weekend to keep their SEC title hopes alive.

Go, 'Cats!
