Baseball SEC Tournament-bound; opener Tuesday morning

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The season may not have ended the way Gary Henderson and his team wanted it to, but the good news for the Kentucky baseball team is that there are still games to be played.

UK (41-15, 18-12 Southeastern Conference) will play as the No. 4 seed in the SEC Tournament beginning on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. ET in Hoover, Ala. The Wildcats will take on No. 9 Ole Miss (34-22, 14-16 SEC), a team the Cats defeated twice in a three-game series from April 6-8. Freshman A.J. Reed (4-2, 3.00 ERA) has been announced as the starter for UK's opener, which will be televised on SportsSouth.

The tournament is double-elimination, so UK will have another game to play this week regardless of the outcome against Ole Miss. If the Cats win, they will get a day off Wednesday before playing at a time to be determined against No. 1 LSU, No. 6 Arkansas or No. 7 Mississippi State on Thursday. Should they lose, UK will face the loser of Arkansas and Mississippi State at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Cat Scratches will have complete coverage of UK's run in the SEC Tournament, beginning with a story from Ryan Suckow later this afternoon after SEC Coach of the Year Gary Henderson speaks on the SEC Coaches' Teleconference today. Following that, we will have live blogs of each of UK's games, as well as columns afterwards.

Beyond Ryan's piece today, content will be a little bare on the blog as I travel down to Alabama, so bear with us.
