Kentucky beats Indiana, advances to Super Regionals

Kentucky takes down the Hoosiers and advances to the Super Regionals!

Thanks to a 4-2 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers, Kentucky was able to win the Lexington Regional!

For just the second time in program history, the Kentucky Wildcats have advanced to the Super Regionals, both coming under the watch of Nick Mingione.

And salty Hoosiers!

Kentucky will now face the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge for a best-of-three series. Kentucky lost the regular-season series 2-1 but did take one game and nearly won Game 3, so the Bat Cats have what it takes to hang with the Tigers. Times and TV channel designations will be announced at a later date.

LSU is the No. 5 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and is coming off a sweep in the Baton Rouge Regional, defeating Tulane 7-2, then edging Oregon State 6-5 before winning Monday’s rematch 13-7.


Tonight’s game at Kentucky Proud Park is a sellout and will be broadcast on ESPN2! You can stream the game online here.

Also, LSU just walloped Oregon State, so the winner of tonight’s Kentucky - Indiana game advances to the Baton Rouge Super Regional to face the Tigers!

What a day it was yesterday for Kentucky baseball. The Wildcats put together a dominant, 10-0 performance over West Virginia in a win-or-go-home Game 5 of the Lexington Regional. Then, with their backs still against the wall, Kentucky later played Indiana in Game 6 to beat the Hoosiers 16-6 and force a Game 7 tonight.

Kentucky’s offense was the difference maker, with the Wildcats scoring more runs in each game on Saturday than they did in both games combined on Friday. With the bats scorching hot going into Monday night’s game, Kentucky fans have to feel good about their team’s chances to put together and capitalize on several scoring opportunities.

The Wildcats’ pitching continues to be the backbone of their team, and they’ll need to continue that if they hope to advance and make history for their program, as they’re the only member of the Southeastern Conference to have never reached the College World Series.

Tonight’s winner-take-all game against Indiana is scheduled to begin at 6 pm ET. Those wishing to attend can purchase tickets via this link, and you can stream it on ESPN+.
