      If UK could some how manage to get up 7-0 and hold that till the 6th inning, the crowd would be 75% UK by then.

      I'm still amazed that Kentucky v Louisville did not get prime time for ESPN. Two top 10 teams, natural rivalries, with matchups like today's--the college baseball player of the year on the mound for Louisville vs the SEC Pitcher of the year for Kentucky.

      I like the Noon start time myself, with a couple of quibbles, but I think it deserved a better slot than this for promotion purposes.

      So no TV coverage? The one time I don't have the goat, biggest game in Ky baseball history.

      Marshall may work his way into an all star at third some day. He is good

      Umpire just missed that. That will be a strike the rest of the game.

      With Heady's improvement, I am very comfortable with balls hit that side now.

      Hjelle missed with his curve early, but hasn't thrown it much, relying on fastballs. His location isn't perfect, but it's not bad, and I'll take a 13-pitch, 3-up, 3-down inning any time for him.

      Got first batter out on a nifty grab by Marshall with a smooth throw to first on the run; a fly ball to Reks in medium left field, and a foul pop up to Evan White.

      Bottom 1
      Kentucky 0
      Louisville 0

      Pompey, batting right-handed to face the southpaw McKay, takes two straight balls, then a called strike about where the umpire missed the first inning strike for Hjelle. McKay relying on his fastball and location, operating between 90-92 it appears if you can believe TV graphics. Then throws a curve on the 7th pitch to Pompey that he just sorta knuckles to the first baseman for an easy groundout.

      White takes a pitch 2 inches farther outside than the one the umpire missed the first inning (told ya it would be a strike). He's behind 0-2, takes a curve low. Another one over the plate, and White hits it right back to central park, safely down in center field for a base hit.

      Ball bounced in the dirt, catcher got lucky and it bounced straight into his mitt, White can't move. Reks in the hole, 1-2. Stat from TV says that Reks is batting 120 points less against southpaws.

      He hits a shot, but it is right at the 3rd baseman, and it's a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning. Tough luck, as Reks hit a shot there.

      Top 2
      Kentucky 0
      Louisville 0

      Hjelle gets his counterpart, McKay (who is a two-way player, in case you missed the 17 times the announcers said it pregame and since) to hit a short fly to center, easy out # 1.

      2-2 on Ellis (the home run hero for UofL yesterday), and he does it again, on a fastball up on a 2-2 pitch, and it's 1-0 Louisville.
