Kentucky Wildcats collect seven extra-base hits in 11-1 romp over Miami

Sophomore first baseman Evan White recorded a career-high four hits and homered as No. 22 Kentucky rolled to an 11-1 romp over Miami (Ohio) on Wednesday night at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

The game was called midway through the eighth inning after persistent thunderstorms in Lexington throughout the evening.

Kentucky (26-15) also got a pair of doubles and a triple from sophomore shortstop Riley Mahan, who drove in two runs. Junior outfielder Storm Wilson chipped in with two RBI as well.

Sophomore left-hander Zach Logue (2-1) pitched five innings for the Cats, allowing only one earned run on four hits and a walk. He struck out seven Miami batters to match his career high. Brad Schaenzer and Daniel Tillo worked the final 2.1 scoreless innings out of the UK bullpen.

Bailey Martin (2-1) started and took the loss for the Redhawks, struggling with his control during three innings on the mound. He allowed seven hits and walked four.

UK travels to Auburn this weekend for a three-game SEC series against the Tigers. The first game of the series is on Friday at 7 p.m. ET. The series resumes with another 7 p.m. start on Saturday, followed by a 2 p.m. first pitch on Sunday.
