Coffel scored at least one run in five-straight games, had three multi-hit games, and tallied seven extra-base hits. The freshman also had two three-RBI games to help push UK to its best start since 2014 at 9-0.

The Wildcats will next play in Orlando, Florida at The Spring Games. UK will play five games over three days with matchups against New Mexico State (2), Stetson (2) and Florida International at the Legend’s Way Ballfields in Clermont.
