    Cardiac Cats Rally For Eighth Comeback Win of Season
    Four-run eighth inning capped by Ryan Shinn’s second game-winning hit in three days

    LEXINGTON, Ky. – Ryan Shinn delivered a game-winning hit for the second time in three days and the Kentucky baseball team rallied for 6-4 victory over SIU-Edwardsville with a four-run eighth inning at Kentucky Proud Park. It was the Wildcats’ eighth come-from-behind win in 12 total victories this season.

    Shinn lined a two-run single to right-centerfield to play hero for the second straight game after his two-run walk-off home run on Sunday vs. Middle Tennessee. His clutch hit came after junior infielder/outfielder Elliott Curtis pulled a two-run single into right field to tie the score at four after the Cats (12-4) entered the inning down 4-2.

    The comeback was ignited by Coltyn Kessler’s double into the right field corner, followed by an Austin Schultz single and Cam Hill walk to load the bases. Curtis then put a quality swing on a 2-1 pitch, scoring Kessler and Schultz to tie the game. After Breydon Daniel walked to re-load the bases, Shinn went the opposite way with another impressive swing in a critical moment.

    Sophomore right-hander Daniel Harper earned his second win of the second by extricating the Cats from a jam in the top of the eighth and handling the final three outs in his second inning of work as the UK bullpen held the Cougars scoreless over the last four innings.
