SOFTBALL: No. 18 Kentucky Defeats No. 4 Texas A&M 7-4 Sunday


LEXINGTON, Ky. – The No. 18 Kentucky softball team got three runs in the first and three in the sixth, which helped propel them to a 7-4 win over the No. 4 Texas A&M Aggies Sunday, April 30 and clinch a Top 5 series win for the first time since 2015.


With the win, Kentucky improves to 34-14 overall and is now a season-high 20 games above the .500 mark. The Wildcats have won two Southeastern Conference series in a row now, and sit tied for seventh with LSU at 11-10 in league play. With the loss, Texas A&M falls to 41-7 overall and is now 15-5 in the SEC this season.

Kentucky will conclude the regular season next weekend in Starkville, Miss., with a three-game series against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Friday’s game will be a part of SEC Network Bases Loaded and Saturday’s game will be shown live on the SEC Network before a Sunday finale live on the SEC Network Plus (online).

UK’s win on Saturday coupled with Sunday’s result clinches a series win against a Top 5 opponent for the first time since March of 2015 when UK took two of three from the No. 1 LSU Tigers at John Cropp Stadium.
