Cats open SEC Tourney with run-rule win over Ole Miss
SEC Player of the Year Abbey Cheek hit her 20th home run of the season to help lead the Kentucky Wildcats to an 8-0 win over Ole Miss in the SEC Tournament on Friday.
The run-rule win was UK’s 13th of the season and now the Cats face top seed Alabama later Friday night in the semifinals.
Cheek opened the scoring with her two-run bomb in the bottom of the first.
Kentucky scored six runs in the third inning, which took more than a half hour to complete.
Autumn Humes picked up the complete-game shutout for the 4th-seeded Cats.
