WKU baseball will meet in-state foe Kentucky at 5:30 p.m. CT Tuesday at Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington for the first of two meetings with the Wildcats this season.

The Wildcats (16-3) were ranked No. 9 in last week’s NCBWA poll and are coming off a series win over Florida.

The Toppers (10-9) are coming off a three-game sweep of Sun Belt Conference rival Middle Tennessee this weekend in their first league series.

Senior first baseman Ryan Huck hit four home runs in the series sweep. He’s hitting .400 on the year with six home runs and 18 RBIs.

UK is led offensively by A.J. Reed (.370, five home runs, 26 RBIs).
