LEXINGTON, Ky. — Tennessee baseball had the night to try and figure out how to come back against Kentucky in game two, but it just was not in the cards.

The Vols failed to muster any offense in their final at-bats of Saturday's continuation of game two, while the Wildcats added one more run in a 5-2 victory.

The teams began game two on Friday night, but the game was suspended due to weather in the middle of the eighth inning.

Tennessee's loss to Kentucky marked the first time this season that the Vols have lost a series. The Wildcats clinched the series following a victory in the season-opener as well.

The Vols tied a season-low two runs in the first two games of the series and have now fallen to 41-6 this season and 19-4 in SEC play. Tennessee has lost three of its last four SEC contests.
