SAN DIEGO -- Due to the potential of rain in southern California Saturday afternoon, the 23rd-ranked Kentucky baseball team has had its game moved to 2 p.m. ET at Cunningham Stadium on the campus of the University of San Diego.

Kentucky (7-1) and defending Northeast Conference champion Monmouth will face off at 2 p.m. ET Saturday, in an effort to miss the rain, forecast for later in the afternoon.
