  • Humes Closes Baalman’s Gem as Kentucky Claims Series in Extras

    BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Fifth-year pitcher Autumn Humes threw the final 1.2 innings of an extra-inning game, and came up with the game-winning double in the top of the eighth as the No. 17 Kentucky Softball team edged Texas A&M, 2-1 in eight innings Saturday afternoon at Davis Diamond.

    With Saturday's win, UK has won the first two games of the series and will go for the sweep Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET live on the SEC Network+, ESPN3 and the ESPN app.

    Grace Baalman could not have been better in the circle for UK as she went 6.1 innings, only allowing one run on eight hits with a walk and a strikeout. The senior from Hardin, Illinois threw 102 pitches on the afternoon with Humes throwing the final 1.2 innings on 25 pitches.

    Tatum Spangler gave UK the lead in the seventh on a two-out RBI triple before Haley Lee tied the game on a solo HR in the bottom half as the first two runs of the game crossed the plate.

    Kentucky improves to 34-12 on the season and is now 9-11 in Southeastern Conference play. Texas A&M falls to 31-16 on the year and is 8-12 in the SEC.
