*Sorry for the half done post in advance. When you have to resort to an iPad at the last minute, things get weird everyone.*
Well folks since mother nature threatened to dump a load of bad weather on Myrtle Beach, S.C. this weekend, Kentucky will take on Kansas State tomorrow at 4:00 p.m at the Caravelle Resort Tournament being held at TicketReturn.com Field down there in Myrtle.
Last seasons record (2012):
Kentucky: 45-18 (Loss in reigonals)
*First meeting between the two teams.*
Who to look for in the pitching matchup:
Kentucky: Southpaw A.J.Reed is slated to start things off from the mound for the Wildcats. Reed’s last outing for the Cats consisted of 5 innings pitched, with 4 strikeouts and only 2 earned runs allowed in a win against UNC Asheville to start the season.
K-State: Lefty Joe Flattery is projected to get the start here. Let’s just say that Flattery has an ERA right now of 22.50 in his one loss at pitching on the season, so the boy has struggled a bit. In his only start this year, Flattery gave up 5 earned runs, 6 hits, and struck nobody out. J.T. Riddle, you know what to do.
Top player for each team:
Kentucky: Who else can you go with besides for J.T. Riddle? J.T. has been an absolute monster in his first three games of this year, going an astounding 11-14 on batting in his first three games. Riddle also went 6-6 against Niagara, falling just a home run shy of hitting the cycle. Some of his other stats on the past three games include: 3 doubles, one triple, a home run, and 6 RBI’s.
K-State: Honestly the big bright spot for the other Wildcats this year has been infielder RJ Santigate. Santigate has a team high batting average of .583 in his three games so far this year. Some of RJ’s stats include: 7 hits, one double, 2 RBI’s, and impressively not struck out yet.
Where to catch the game:
