JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Mar. 5, 2003) - Freshman Jeremy Hall (Gray, Tenn.) pitched well in his second collegiate start, allowing just three hits in six innings, but Kentucky held the Bucs scoreless and scored three runs of their own in the final two innings to come away with a 3-0 victory Wednesday afternoon from Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington, Ky. With the win, the Wildcats even their record to 5-5, while the Bucs fall to 4-7. The first six innings of the game was a true pitchers duel, as Hall battled with four Wildcat pitchers. All told, UK used seven pitchers, with Mark Galvin getting the start and pitching three innings. He was followed by six relievers that each pitched one inning. The Wildcats offense struggled early, but picked up two runs in the bottom of the seventh on a RBI single from Gordon Tyler and an ETSU error on a Jake Kungl sacrifice bunt attempt. Mike Breyman, who led the offensive attack for the Cats with a 2-for-3 effort, started the inning with a 12-pitch at-bat eventually resulting in a single to right field. After Andrew Levenson reached on a walk Tyler delivered his single through the hole at shortstop to score Breyman. J.B. Schmidt, pinch running for Levenson, came in to score when Kungl laid down a bunt that was mishandled. The third Kentucky run was added in the eighth inning when freshman Michael Bertram collected his first hit and RBI as a Wildcat, a single to score Spencer Graeter. Kentucky reliever Kalen Gibson (2-0) picked up the win after pitching the seventh inning and striking out the side. ETSU's Kite (1-2) was charged with the loss, allowing two hits and one earned run without recording an out in the seventh. Junior center fielder Tim Turner (Marietta, Ga.) led the Bucs at the plate, going 2-for-4 on the afternoon. Junior second baseman Andy Howdeshell (Maryville, Tenn.) and sophomore pinch-hitter Davis Burklin (Knoxville, Tenn.) also collected hits for ETSU. The Bucs will now return home to face William & Mary tomorrow afternoon from Cardinal Park at 3 p.m.
