A two-hour rain delay and a pair of four-run deficits couldn't cool a sizzling Kentucky baseball team.

UK extended a school-record home winning streak to 20 games with a 19-6 win over Dayton behind six home runs, all of which game in the first five innings. Luke Maile had a pair of home runs and four RBI, while Zac Zellers had three hits in as many at-bats, including a grand slam, which plated all four of his RBI.

Left-handed Sam Mahar was solid in relief of starter Chandler Shepherd to pick up his second win behind the explosive Wildcat offense. Shepherd had the roughest start of his freshman season, allowing four runs and recording just two outs in the first inning, but Mahar handcuffed the Flyer offense in his place. Mahar allowed just one unearned run on four hits and five strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

Next up, No. 1 UK will look to take its fourth consecutive series in SEC play this weekend against Ole Miss beginning on Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Cliff Hagan Stadium, but first, here's video of head coach Gary Henderson and outfielder Austin Cousino about UK's 28th win in 30 tries.
