06/05/2017 12:40 AM

UK fell behind 2-0 in the second inning but was able to pull even in the third. Marcus Carson homered to right center in the bottom of the fourth inning and the Wildcats were able to secure the lead in the bottom of the fifth when Riley Mahan singled to right field to bring in Kole Cottam to make it 4-3.

UK was able to extend the lead in a crazy sixth inning with 2 outs as Tristan Pompey doubled to left field, a walk to Evan White, a Zach Reks hit up the middle to bring in Pompey, a walk to Cottam, another walk to Mahan to walk in White, a single by Luke Becker to bring in Reks and a wild pitch that brings in Cottam.

After the game Coach Mingione talked about a meeting he had with the players and how that message has been with them from day 1.

Coach Mingione also gave an emotional speech about Senior CF Marcus Carson.

The Wildcats will take on NC State again at 7pm on Monday at The Cliff.
