LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Coming off a midweek win over No. 15 Indiana, Kentucky will conclude its 2013 regular season with a three-game series at Missouri, with first pitch of the series opener slated for 7 p.m. ET on Thursday at Taylor Stadium. The series will resume on Friday at 7 p.m. ET and conclude on Saturday at 2 p.m. ET.
Kentucky (29-22, 10-17 Southeastern Conference) is in the midst of a race for the SEC Tournament, held May 21-27 in Hoover, Ala., at the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. UK needs a win in the series to clinch a berth in the 12-team field. Sitting with a No. 27 NCAA RPI and the No. 6 strength of schedule after the Tuesday night win over Indiana, the Wildcats own 13 wins over top-41 RPI teams.
