CLERMONT, Fla. — The Kentucky Softball team is off to its best start in program history at 13-0, after winning games against Stetson and New Mexico State on day two of the 2021 Spring Games at Legend’s Way Ballfields in Clermont, Florida.

In Kentucky’s 7-0 win over Stetson, the Wildcats got a spectacular combined complete-game shutout from Tatum Spangler and Grace Baalman, who together threw seven innings and carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning. Spangler went 6.0 innings, allowing no runs on one hit and struck out six.

To cap off the night, Kentucky got a walk-off home run from Kayla Kowalik in the bottom of the fifth inning to run rule New Mexico State 10-1 in five to complete a 13-0 start to the season, and tie the best start in program history.

UK’s time at THE Spring Games ends on Sunday with a 12:30 p.m. ET rematch against Stetson. The game can be seen live on FLOsoftball with a proper subscription, and live stats will be free on UKathletics.com.
