HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Kentucky continued an impressive run in the Southeastern Conference tournament with a 4-2 victory over top-seeded Florida on Wednesday night.

The No. 9 seed Wildcats (34-22) jumped out early, scoring four runs in the first three innings to take a 4-1 lead. Kyle Cody (4-0) gave up two runs over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win while Chandler Shepherd threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for his first save.

Kentucky will play on Thursday against the winner of Wednesday’s late game between Mississippi State and South Carolina. Florida will face the loser of the Mississippi State/South Carolina game on Thursday.

Florida (37-20), which had a 21-9 regular-season record in the SEC, managed just six hits. Gators’ ace Logan Shore (7-3) took the loss, giving up four runs in 5 2/3 innings.
