LEXINGTON, Ky. — There’s a change of plans for Kentucky’s weekend baseball series against LSU as the Wildcats and Tigers will play a doubleheader on Friday with bad weather in the forecast for Saturday. The series will conclude on Sunday as planned.
But weather won’t stop the excitement around this weekend set between No. 9 LSU and No. 10 Kentucky. The top-10 matchup will feature 2 of the top teams in the SEC. Kentucky (26-12 overall, 10-5 SEC) leads the East and LSU (26-12 overall, 9-6 SEC) is in fourth place in the West.
The Tigers have played just 8 road games this season and haven’t fared well at 3-5. Meanwhile, Kentucky has lost just 2 home games all season.
Coach Nick Mingione’s Kentucky squad is coming off a series win at Missouri last weekend and a midweek victory against No. 2 Louisville. LSU has won 6 of its last 7 games and took 2 of 3 from Ole Miss last weekend.
