Fettes' 4 hits highlight Kentucky Scrimmage

Junior catcher Greg Fettes banged out four hits Friday to highlight Kentucky Baseball's first fall intrasquad scrimmage at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

Fettes, a native of Madison Heights, Mich., and the 2013 All-SEC Freshman Team catcher, went 4-for-5 with a double in the third inning.

The Wildcat bats were out in full force as the teams combined for 29 hits in a 10-3 win by the Black squad. Junior catcher Zach Arnold, sophomore infielder Connor Heady, freshman first baseman Evan White and senior outfielder Ka'ai Tom each collected three hits on the day with Arnold driving in three runs.

Freshman infielder Riley Mahan, a product of Cincinnati’s Moeller High School, added a 2-for-5 day at the plate, including a bunt single and a triple into the right-centerfield gap.

Sophomore outfielder Marcus Carson, redshirt freshman catcher/infielder Troy Squires and freshman switch-hitting catcher Marshall Gei each had two hits, with Squires ripping a double down the line and Gei notching an RBI double.

On the mound, UK’s scrimmage was highlighted by two shutout innings each from Zack Brown, Taylor Martin and Robert Zeigler. Zeigler fanned four in two shutout, one-hit frames, with Martin striking out two and Brown striking out one in his two innings. In addition, junior southpaw Dylan Dwyer returned to the mound for the first game-like action since suffering an injury at Georgia in the regular-season 2014 finale.

Kentucky will scrimmage again on Saturday at 9:45 a.m. at Cliff Hagan Stadium before UK’s noon football kickoff with Vanderbilt at Commonwealth Stadium.
