KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The No. 18 Tennessee Lady Vols got two runs in the second and third innings, which proved to be enough as they took the rubber match of the three-game series with Kentucky in a 6-2 decision on Eastern Sunday on Rocky Top.

Kentucky had three hits in the game, with Kowalik mustering two of them with a home run and a triple in Sunday’s contest. The two RBI for Kowalik and pair of hits improve her season average to .482 on the year.
