UK Softball beats DePaul, advances to NCAA Super Regional

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky sophomore Sylver Samuel hit an inside the park home run in the first inning and then the Wildcats exploded for six runs in the second to pull away for a 10-1 (5) victory to advance to the program’s third NCAA Super Regional appearance.

Sophomore pitcher Kelsey Nunley tossed both games, but picked up the five-inning win for her 27th of the season. Samuel had her first career homer and added a triple, while classmate Christian Stokes hit a bases-clearing double for three RBI to pace the Wildcat attack.

UK advances to take on No. 3 national seed UCLA in Los Angles next weekend. Kentucky will be looking for its first-ever trip to the World Series and will need to win 2-of-3 in a series with the Bruins to achieve that goal.
