Kentucky earned a massive road victory at No. 5 Louisville last night, defeating the Cards 11-7 in an offensively flourishing outing. It was the first road win over a top-five team since 2017 and first at Louisville since 2013.

Sophomore shortstop Ryan Ritter had an marvelous performance to lead the Cats. He drove in six runs total with a three-run homer and three-run double in his first two at-bats. He also made some big plays defensively, ranging to the opposite side of second base on a ground ball and throwing out the runner to save what would have been two huge runs.

Senior first baseman TJ Collett also had a good outing, as he finished 2/3 with two RBI. He has reached base safely in 25 of the last 26 games now, including eight straight at-bats.

Kentucky overall had 15 hits on the game, along with using seven pitchers on the mound as the score just got larger. They next welcome LSU at Kentucky Proud Park this coming weekend for a three-game series. The first pitch is set for 6:30 and will be televised on SEC Network Plus.
