LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - After a pitching-dominated game in the series opener on Friday, the offense dominated a Sunday doubleheader, as UALR recorded a series sweep over the WKU baseball team with a 10-6 win in game one of the doubleheader, then a 16-6 win in the series finale. The two teams combined for 38 runs and 50 hits in the two Sunday games.
The series sweep was the first for UALR over WKU since the 1994 season, and marks the first time since the 2011 season that the Hilltoppers have been swept in a conference series.
In the two Sunday games, WKU was led offensively by freshman outfielder Trevor Lowe, who picked up five hits on Sunday, including his first career three-hit game in the series finale. Lowe, who had a walk-off home run in the 18th inning on Tuesday against Kentucky, had back-to-back multi-hit games for the second time this year, and recorded his third multi-hit game in his last four games.
The Hilltoppers will travel to Louisville on Tuesday to face the Cardinals, with first pitch scheduled for 5:00 PM (CT). WKU will be looking for its first season sweep of both Kentucky and Louisville since accomplishing that feat back in 1996. The Hilltoppers will return home to face ULM in a three-game conference series on Friday at Nick Denes Field.
