Senior pitcher Jerad Grundy picked up the win for UKĀ (28-19, 10-14 SEC) in the first midweek start of his collegiate career.

The Cats took a 2-0 lead in the first inning before Wright State halved the deficit by scoring a run in the fourth inning.

UK then added a run in both the sixth and seventh innings to secure the 4-1 scoreline.
