HOOVER, Ala. (WKYT) - The Kentucky baseball Wildcats continued their improbable postseason run on Saturday with a 7-2 win over 4th-seeded LSU. UK becomes the first 12-seed to advance to the SEC Tournament semifinals.

UK starter Tyler Bosma took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, before surrendering two runs in the top of the inning. It’s the longest no-hit bid by a Kentucky pitcher this season. Bosma finished with 10 strikeouts and only one hit allowed.

Jacob Plastiak’s solo home run in the second staked the Cats to a 3-0 lead. UK would add runs in the fourth and fifth innings, giving Nick Mingione’s club a 7-0 lead.

Daniel Harper relieved Bosma for the save.

UK will be making only its second appearance ever in the SEC Tournament semifinals. The Wildcats will face No. 1 Tennessee in the nightcap at the Hoover Met on Saturday.
