LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Due to the threat of inclement weather Sunday in the Lexington area, Kentucky and South Carolina will play a doubleheader Saturday, starting at 3 p.m. ET to guarantee completion of the three-game Southeastern Conference series at John Cropp Stadium.  

South Carolina defeated Kentucky, 6-4, in game one of the series Friday. Game two of the series will be at 3 p.m. ET Saturday with the series finale scheduled to start 30 minutes following the completion of the day's first game. Both games will be available through WatchESPN on the SEC Network+, while live stats from both games will be available online at UKathletics.com. Former UK outfielder Ginny Carroll will provide the color commentary for both games, while Mark Buerger will be on play-by-play.  

Single-game tickets are available and are $5 for adults, $2 for seniors (ages 65 or older) and youth (ages 6-18), while children ages five and under will be admitted free of charge. Tickets are available by calling the UK Ticket Office at 1-800-928-2287, in person at the Joe Craft Center Ticket Office or online at www.ukathletics.com/tickets. Tickets will be sold -- cash only -- on game days at the ticket booths outside John Cropp Stadium with gates opening one hour prior to first pitch. Tickets for Saturday and Sunday will be valid for both games Saturday.

The first 100 UK fans into the stadium Saturday will receive a set of 2015 Kentucky Softball Trading Cards. Saturday is Family Fun Day at the park, featuring pregame and postgame youth activities, including face painting, hair bow making, inflatables, autographs and pictures with the team.
