LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — In front of a record breaking crowd, Kentucky baseball shut out Oregon State 10-0 in game one of the Lexington Super Regional. This is the Cats first Super Regional win in program history.

And with that the Cats are one game away from their first College World Series berth in program history. Game two is Sunday night at 9 p.m. on ESPNU.

Big Blue Nation packed Kentucky Proud Park with the largest crowd ever in Kentucky baseball history with 7,441 fans.

UK got on the scoreboard first in the bottom of the second. Ryan Nicholson doubled to center field to send in Nick Lopez.

Bottom of the fifth, Emilien Pitre doubled to right center for the two-run RBI. Grant Smith and James McCoy scored as the Cats took the 3-0 lead.

The bottom of the seventh changed this game entirely. Kentucky scored seven runs, including a two-run bomb from Nicholson.
