COLUMBIA, Mo. (FOX 56) – After beating a ranked Georgia team at home to end the month of March, the Kentucky baseball team has now lost three straight SEC conference series after losing to Missouri this weekend.

The Wildcats scored 15 runs on 22 hits in Game One of the series on Thursday, but followed that up with a 9-4 loss in Game Two on Friday and a 10-6 loss in Game Three on Saturday afternoon.

A strong start for the Cat Bats gave UK a 6-0 lead after two innings, grabbing a run in the first frame on an RBI single from Chase Estep and putting up a five-spot in the 2nd inning.

Missouri responded with a huge 3rd inning, scoring eight runs in the frame alone to take the lead and crush Kentucky’s hopes of pulling off a road series win.

Weekend losses to Texas A&M and Ole Miss this month have dropped the Wildcats to 5-10 record in SEC games, currently in the bottom half of the conference standings to overshadow an otherwise-solid overall record of 21-15.

They have lost seven of their last 12 games overall, and get ready for a rivalry showdown on Tuesday evening at Louisville. First pitch is set for 5 p.m. across the state.
