  • Ten Spot: Kentucky Winning Streak Hits Double-Digits

    LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Kentucky baseball team completed a clean sweep of its opening week, punctuating the start with two impressive victories over Milwaukee in Saturday's doubleheader at Kentucky Proud Park. The wins give UK a 10-game winning streak dating back to last season.

    Led by the heavy hitting of freshman infielder Reuben Church, the continued brilliance of sophomore outfielder John Rhodes and a stingy pitching staff, the Wildcats (4-0) took the opening game of the doubleheader, 9-3, and capped the day with a 4-2 victory. Both games were seven-inning affairs.

    Church, an imposing presence from Maryville, Tenn., made his case for Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, going 6-for-10 with four doubles and his first career home run in the three-game sweep of Milwaukee. He leads the Cats in runs (five) and RBI (five) despite not playing in the season opener. He put an exclamation point on his debut with a no-doubt blast to left-centerfield to give the Cats a two-run cushion heading into the final inning of game two.

    The freshman was hardly alone in doing damage. Rhodes, a preseason All-American, doubled in his first at-bat of both games and crushed a three-run home run to left field in the second inning of the opener, giving UK a lead it wouldn't relinquish. In fact, the Cats did not trail at all during their first four games.
