Down the stretch they come

One is locked up, the other is hanging on. With the regular season dwindling down, the baseball and softball seasons hang in the balance.

The softball team, to an extent, can rest easy just a bit as its clinched a spot in the Southeastern Conference Tournament with one week left to play. As softball journeys south for the final series of the year, UK can do no worse than finish in the eighth and final spot for the league tourney.

Rachel Lawson's Cats (11-14 in conference) currently sit in sixth place heading into the last series. Arkansas and Auburn could potentially leapfrog them in the final weekend, but the Cats' biggest concern appears to be the NCAA Tournament. At 29-23, UK is in decent position, but the farther away from .500 UK gets the better.

Meanwhile, the baseball team is just trying to hang on to hope of playing in the SEC Tournament. With three SEC series to go, UK (7-14 in SEC) sits in the unenviable position of the 10th place, two spots out of the conference tournament.

Tennessee, which took two of three from the Cats this weekend, sits one game ahead in ninth place and Alabama holds a two-game lead in eighth. With nine games left there is still plenty of time to make a move, but baseball has a tough two weekends ahead.

First it's East Division leading South Carolina at Cliff Hagan Stadium this weekend followed by a home series with defending national champion LSU the following weekend.

Full standings below. Remember, only the top eight teams overall make the league tournaments.
