Wednesday Special Game Note
Kentucky’s perfect pair.
One perfect game was not enough for the No. 18 Kentucky softball team, as junior Rachel Rileyturned in the performance of her career with a flawless pitching effort and a perfect 4-for-4 day at the dish in leading UK to a 13-0 win in the second game of a doubleheader with Austin Peay. Riley posted a home run, a double and a single and brought in a school record-tying six RBI to pace the Blue and White.

Junior Chanda Bell tossed the first perfect game in UK history in the opener of the doubleheader, and Riley matched the feat while also notching her first career no-hitter effort.

Kentucky improves to 27-7 overall on the year behind Riley’s masterful performance. Senior Meagan Aull was also a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate and hit her fifth homer in the last six games for the Blue and White
