LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Down 5-2 in the fifth inning, Renee Abernathy hit a grand slam and No. 14 Kentucky beat No. 15 LSU 7-5 Friday night to win the series opener at John Cropp Stadium.

In the top of the fifth, Georgia Clark hit a three-run blast to put the Tigers in front 5-2 before the Wildcat rally.

The three-game series resumes Saturday at 4:00.
