It's the match-up everyone wants to see: #1 Purdue vs #2 Kentucky! Okay, so the game is in the losers' bracket, but still. With a win over 4 seed Valparaiso yesterday the Wildcats shook off their 21 inning loss Friday night and staved off elimination in the NCAA Tournament. The win was Kentucky's 44th of the season tying them with the 2006 and 2008 squads for the all-time school record. The loser of this game is eliminated while the winner will advance to play Kent State at 8:00 PM tonight. If Kent State loses tonight then a final game will be played tomorrow.
Kentucky sends their best starter - Corey Littrell - to the mound to face a powerful Purdue offense. Littrell is 8-2 with a 2.66 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 7.90 K/9. He
