|Kent beat Somerset by 28 runs (Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method)|
Kent won their third successive One-Day Cup match, beating Somerset by 28 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.
After a rain-delayed start reduced the game to 42 overs per side, Somerset were 65-5 after fewer than 19 overs.
Matt Renshaw (56) and Lewis Gregory (60) made 103 runs for the sixth wicket but they struggled to 221-9 despite debutant Ben Green's unbeaten 26.
In reply Joe Denly (44 not out) and Heino Kuhn (36 not out) led Kent to 88-1 from 16 overs when rain intervened.
The hosts - skippered by England wicket-keeper-batsman Sam Billings on his return from the Indian Premier League - lost opener Daniel Bell-Drummond in the third ball of their innings but rallied to move up to fourth in their group.
New Zealand paceman Matt Henry finished with figures of 3-37, with Calum Haggett also taking three wickets, while Somerset called on Green to replace England Test bowler Craig Overton, who missed out with a slight hand injury.
