GREENSBORO, N.C. — The No. 12 Kentucky Softball team swept the UNC Greensboro in a doubleheader on Friday afternoon thanks to a grand slam from senior pitcher Autumn Humes and two home runs from junior Renee Abernathy to go along with stellar outings from pitcher Grace Baalman and Humes in the circle.

With the two wins, Kentucky improves to 5-0 on the season for the second year in a row, marking the program’s first-ever back-to-back 5-0 start in UK Softball history.

The Carolina Swing for UK continues on Saturday and Sunday in the Campbell Invitational at Buies Creek, as the Wildcats will open up play Saturday at 2 p.m. ET against NC Central.
