LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Kentucky baseball team beat Auburn twice this weekend, including a 6-3 win Saturday, to book the final spot in the SEC Tournament.

Entering the day, the Wildcats had to beat Auburn or get a Missouri loss to Georgia to advance to Hoover and both scenarios happened.

Kentucky trailed 1-0 most of the game, before the Wildcats scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Jake Plastiak delivered a two-run, go-ahead single and the Cats poured it on from there.

Kentucky (30-24, 12-18) now has won four series against top 20 opponents. The Wildcats will play Auburn again on Tuesday in the opening round of the SEC Tournament.
