The Kentucky Wildcats baseball team hopes to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive as they open up the SEC Tournament with a matchup against Florida.
Kentucky enters as the 11-seed to face off against the 6-seed Gators. The Cats probably need two wins to have a shot at an at-large bid, and with the opening round being single elimination, today is a must-win for the Cats.
The Gators took the series in Lexington this season, 2-1. Kentucky took the first game, and had Florida on the ropes in the second before a late Gators rally, and then Florida took the third game of the series.
Today’s game should be a close one with so much on the line.
The winner of today’s game advances to face third-seeded Mississippi State on Wednesday morning as the double-elimination portion of the tournament begins.
Here’s your need-to-know info:
#11-seed Kentucky (29-22, 12-18) vs. #6-seed FLORIDA (35-19, 17-13)
When: 10:30 a.m. ET; Tuesday, May 25
Where: Hoover Metropolitan Stadium (Hoover, Ala.)
TV: SEC Network;
Radio: UK Sports Network (630 AM WLAP, Lexington)
