The University of Kentucky’s baseball game Friday against Georgia at Cliff Hagan Stadium has been moved from this evening to this afternoon because of rain in the forecast for tonight.

First pitch is now set for 2 p.m.

The remaining games in this weekend’s series remain as originally scheduled: Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

Friday’s postgame fireworks show has been canceled but all other promotions remain in place.
