A 2-1 series victory against LSU this past weekend pushed Kentucky’s baseball team back to No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball poll. The Cats were also ranked No. 2 by Baseball America and No. 3 in the USA Today/ESPN coaches’ poll.
The Southeastern Conference-leading Wildcats, who were ranked No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball earlier this season, are fourth in the NCAA RPI, and have a 10-5 record against top-25 foes.
Kentucky (35-6, 13-5 SEC) will play Tuesday night at Louisville, the Cats’ 14th ranked opponent in their last 16 games. UK freshman southpaw Sam Mahar (3-1, 1.71 ERA) will face Louisville sophomore right-hander Chad Green (2-0, 1.99 ERA).
