Kentucky baseball team tops Murray 2-1 to go to 18-0: Shepherd has another strong outing on hill...

March 15,

Junior outfielder Cameron Flynn belted a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning and No. 16 Kentucky used strong pitching performances from Chandler Shepherd, Alex Phillips, Tim Peterson and Trevor Gott to post its 18th consecutive win, 2-1 over Murray State on Wednesday at Cliff Hagan Stadium.  

Kentucky, the only undefeated team in NCAA Division I baseball, are just one win shy of equaling the school record for the longest winning streak and the best start to a season. The 2007 and 2008 teams won their first 19 games to open the season.

Kentucky will attempt to tie the record when it opens Southeastern Conference play against two-time defending NCAA champion South Carolina at Cliff Hagan Stadium on Friday. The Cats play a three-game series against the second-ranked Gamecocks. Flynn went 2-for-4 Wednesday, hitting his team-high sixth homer of the year. Flynn is batting .439 with four doubles this season. Junior outfielder Zac Zellers and freshman slugger A.J. Reed also had two hits each. Freshman center fielder Austin Cousino extended his streak of reaching base safely to 17 consecutive games, each contest of his collegiate career.

Shepherd worked 5 1/3 innings, allowing only three hits and one walk and striking out three. Phillips (2-0) relieved Shepherd in the sixth, working 2 1/3 innings and allowing one hit and one run. Peterson came on in the eighth, allowing one hit while recording one out. Despite a ninth-inning error, Gott closed out the game with two strikeouts for his third save. Bryan Babin (1-1) pitched six innings for Murray State (8-8), allowing seven hits and two runs.

Kentucky beats South Carolina on walk-off homer, goes to 19-0


Junior catcher Luke Maile hit a two-run, walk-off home run to center field in the bottom of the ninth to lift No. 16 Kentucky to a series-opening 4-3 win over No. 2 South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference baseball opener Friday night at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

Kentucky (19-0, 1-0 SEC) is off to the best start in school history, equaling the 2007 and 2008 teams' starts. UK leads the NCAA in wins, winning streak and is the only undefeated team in college baseball. The walk-off home run was Kentucky's first since Lance Ray belted a three-run shot against LSU in 2010.
