Friday’s South Carolina-at-Kentucky baseball game has been postponed due to wet grounds.
The game will be made up Saturday as part of a doubleheader, starting at noon. Both games are scheduled for nine innings.
The three-game series is scheduled to conclude with a single game, Sunday at 1 p.m.
Kentucky-South Carolina: rain delay
Live from Cliff Hagan Stadium at the University of Kentucky, it’s … a rain delay.
The scheduled 6:30 p.m. start between Kentucky and Southeastern Conference foe South Carolina won’t happen. Rain continues to fall on the tarp-covered infield. Umpires and coaches are scheduled to reconvene at 7 p.m. to consider options.
Friday’s contest is the first of a three-game series.
