Christian Howe picked up the first win of his collegiate career on the mound
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky native Christian Howe picked up the first win of his collegiate career on the mound and No. 17 Kentucky capped a nearly flawless midweek schedule with a 9-2 victory over Tennessee Tech on a warm Tuesday evening at Kentucky Proud Park.
The Wildcats improved to 34-13 on the season by scoring the game’s final nine runs. UK finished its midweek non-conference schedule at 10-1 and continue to bolster its case for the postseason.
Howe, a redshirt freshman right-hander from nearby Danville, Kentucky, struck out four in two hitless innings, dominating the Golden Eagle hitters with a diving fastball. Offensively, Jackson Gray roped his sixth triple of the season and Hunter Gilliam reached 10 home runs with an opposite field line drive to give the Cats a lead they would never relinquish.
