KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – After another weekend series sweep, No. 7/8 Tennessee is slated to play five more home games this week, starting with a pair of midweek contests against Kansas State and Southern Indiana.

Tennessee has never played either program entering this week's matchups against the Wildcats and Screaming Eagles.

NOTABLE

Win Streak Into Double Digits
Tennessee continued its early season success with another undefeated showing last week, going 4-0 to run its win streak to 10 games, marking the program's sixth win streak of 10 or more games since 2019. Over its current win streak, the Vols have outscored their opponents 117-30 and have posted five run-rule victories, including three straight in last weekend's series sweep of Bowling Green. UT is averaging 11.7 runs per game during the streak, as well.

Billy Barrels
Junior third baseman Billy Amick has been red-hot at the plate this season, leading the team and ranking among the SEC leaders in numerous offensive categories, including hits (17), home runs (seven), RBIs (18), total bases (42) and slugging percentage (.933). Amick was named the SEC Player of the Week on Monday after blasting four homers and leading the league with eight runs scored last week.

Burke Chasing Home Run Record
After hitting three homers in last weekend's series sweep of Bowling Green, junior slugger Blake Burkeis just six home runs away from tying the program record held by his predecessor at first base, Luc Lipcius, who hit 40 during his UT career (218 games played). Burke's 34 career long balls have come in just 122 games played.

Nice read.

Check out this article from Knoxville News:

Tony Vitello, 'Mike Honcho' worthy of Netflix series about 2022 Tennessee baseball | Adams


When I brought that up to UT coach Tony Vitello, he said: “UAlbany was four times better than that Iona team.”
I think if ESPN picked it for a 30 for 30, it’d get a lot of viewership just from hate watchers. It’d be probably seen in the same vein as the Bad Boy pistons 30 for 30 was

Do you have stats on the Kansas St pitcher we are facing so far this season. Like game by game. If anyone has it, you just might.

Kansas State SP Boerema is going to be an interesting matchup for Blake, Billy, and the boys. In 15 innings he has 28 SO’s, 8 walks, and has held opposing hitters to a .204 BA. He’s given up 2 HR’s.
This is our best midweek matchup of the year. Very exciting that they are pitching their top arm. Let’s move to 3-1 against the Big 12 today!
