Freshman outfielder Marcus Carson had a pair of hits and stole a base, while sophomore outfielder Ka'ai Tom hit a home run in the Wildcats' six-inning scrimmage.

Carson, a native of London, Ky., went 2-for-3 with two runs, a double and a stolen base to spark the Black offense at the top of the order. Tom, a native of Kaneohe, Hawaii, went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a solo homer down the rightfield line in the sixth.

The Black squad also got hits from Austin Cousino, Thomas Bernal, Connor Heady and Jacob Russell, with Bernal and Russell doubling and Heady ripping an opposite-field triple. The Blue got hits from A.J. Reed, Dorian Hairston, Troy Squires, Bryce Bastien and Tyler Marshall.

Freshman lefty Logan Salow, a native of Ashland, Ky., started and worked three innings for the Blue team. Sophomore southpaw Ryne Combs worked two innings, allowing just the solo homer to Tom. Freshman righty Austin Perry worked three shutout innings for the Black in a start.

The Cats will return to scrimmage action on Saturday with a 10-inning workout. First pitch time is slated for Noon ET at Cliff Hagan Stadium.
