Kentucky softball looked to bounce back from a tough loss against Oklahoma on Friday as they faced off against Hofstra and Utah. The Cats picked up two big wins, including the 400th win of Coach Rachel Lawson’s career. Coach Lawson is the first coach in program history to win 400 games.

 

Hofstra

Larissa Spellman pitched her first career complete game shutout, going the distance only allowing two hits in a 8-0 win over Hofstra. 

The Cats got on the board early by scoring three in the first inning on an Alex Martens two-fun home run and an Abbey Cheek RBI double. 

Mallory Peyton added a two-run shot in the third to extend the Cats’ lead to 5-0.

Kayla Kowalik brought home a pair of runs with a two m-RBI triple to right field corner to give Kentucky a 7-0 lead.

Spellman continued her dominant performance and Tatum Spangler walked the Wildcats off with an RBI single up the middle to score Hannah Davis.

Kentucky took down Hofstra, 8-0.

 

Utah

In the afternoon game of the day for Kentucky, Autumn Humes helped picked up the win in the circle going the distance and only allowing two runs by the Utes. Kentucky scored 10 runs in the bottom of the second capped off by a grand slam by Mallory Peyton. They would later add three more runs and win, 13-2.

Kentucky continues playing Saturday morning at 10 a.m. ET against  #11 Texas on the SEC Network and #19 Oregon at 4 p.m. ET on ESPNU.
