Kentucky's historic baseball season comes to an end with 15-4 loss to Florida

UK Athletics

Brody Donay hit a grand slam for the first of his two homers, Jac Caglianone became Florida’s all-time home run leader and the Gators rode a seven-run first inning to a 15-4 win over Kentucky in a College World
Series elimination game. Kentucky went 1-2 in its first CWS appearance after giving up the most runs since it lost 16-6 to LSU on April 13, 2023.

The game had been scheduled for Tuesday night but was postponed because of rain.

“This is not how you want to end your season, but this is where you want to end your season,” Kentucky coach Nick Mingione said. "Just so proud of our group of men. They're unbelievable in every sense of the word. They made history. This hurts. It hurts a lot because this team is fully capable of accomplishing our goal of being national champions. That wasn't the case this year. That's not what the Lord planned.”
