Brad Schaenzer gives Kentucky Wildcats latest great outing as win streak reaches six

Cats roll past Wright State 15-1.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Chalk up another great starting pitching performance and another victory for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Brad Schaenzer (2-0) extended his season scoreless innings streak to 15.2 on Tuesday, tossing six shutout innings in the Cats' 15-1 win over Wright State at Cliff Hagan Stadium.

The junior left-hander from Oxford, Mich., allowed only three hits, struck out eight and walked only one before handing the ball over to the UK bullpen to close out the Cats' sixth consecutive win and their eighth in the last nine games.

During the winning streak, Kentucky (8-5) has outscored opponents 61-7 and posted a team ERA of 1.00. 

Marcus Carson and Zach Reks provided the offensive punch on this day. Carson went 4-for-6 with a pair of doubles and three RBI, while Reks went 2-for-4 with a double and five RBI. Evan White and Connor Heady also had two hits apiece for UK, including the second home run of the year for Heady.

The Cats turned a 4-0 game in the sixth into a romp by posting 11 runs in the next two frames.

Wright State (7-6) entered the game on a four-game winning streak and had split six games this season with No. 4 South Carolina and No. 10 Clemson. The Raiders appeared in the Top 25 earlier this season.

Trevor Swaney (1-1) took the loss, allowing four earned runs on five hits and two walks over two innings on the mound.

Kentucky returns to action Wednesday at Cincinnati. First pitch is slated for 4 p.m. ET.
