UK Football

The Kentucky football program picked up another top five recruit. Keontra Smith out of Florida announced his commitment to the Wildcats on his Twitter. Smith is ranked as the No. 5 safety in the country and the No. 57 player overall. He received offers from Ole Miss, Louisville, Michigan State, Miami as well as other power five conference programs.


NCAA Baseball (Louisville)

Colby Fitch drove in four runs, Sam Bordner shut down Texas A&M after it cut Louisville's five-run lead to one, and the Cardinals beat the Aggies 8-4 on Sunday for their first win in six College World Series games. The Cardinals (53-10) used six singles and a walk to build a 5-0 lead in the second inning against Corbin Martin (7-4). Texas A&M chipped away against national player of the year Brendan McKay (11-3) to make it 5-4 before Bordner entered. Bordner pitched three innings of no-hit relief, and the Cardinals added two runs in the bottom of the sixth and another on Fitch's RBI double in the eighth. Louisville will play Tuesday night @ 7 PM vs the Florida Gators who defeated TCU 3-0.


Cincinnati Reds

Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner homered, Kenta Maeda pitched five strong innings and drove in two runs and Kike Hernandez made a spectacular game-saving catch as the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-7 Sunday. Maeda (5-3), in his first appearance since June 9 and first start since June 4, allowed just three hits and one run in five innings to help the Dodgers complete a three-game sweep. Scooter Gennett hit a three-run home run, his first since he had a major-league record-tying four on June 6, and Adam Duvall and Eugenio Suarez each added solo shots for the Reds.

Cincinnati tried to rally from an 8-1 deficit in the sixth inning. However, Hernandez went back to the left-field wall and made an awkward leaping grab of Joey Votto's attempt at a go-ahead extra-base hit with runners on first and third in the eighth. Kenley Jansen got the last three outs for his 15th save Bronson Arroyo (3-6) lasted only three innings, giving up five runs and seven hits. The Reds will try to end a current 9-game losing streak as they travel to Tampa Bay tonight to begin 3 game series vs the Rays. First pitch tonight is set for 7:10 PM and available on AM 600 WJYH in Paintsville.
