Kentucky improved to 4-5 on the season with an impressive 17-2 win over Western Kentucky on Wednesday afternoon at Cliff Hagan Stadium.
The Wildcats had 12 extra-base hits among their 21 knocks on the day, including three apiece by Marcus Carson, Evan White, Kole Cottam and Riley Mahan. Carson and White both hit home runs, while Mahan drove in a team-high four runs.
Freshman left-hander Zack Thompson earned the first win of his UK career, allowing only one earned run and striking out seven Hilltoppers over six innings on the mound.
