Kent beat Somerset at home in the Royal London One-Day Cup by 28 runs on Duckworth/Lewis (DLS).
It is now three wins in a row for the Spitfires after losing their opening two matches.
Kent restricted the visitors to 221 in the reduced overs game and were ahead of the DLS par score when the rain came during their innings.
Kent made two changes to the side that beat Hampshire on Sunday with skipper Sam Billings back in the side after returning from the IPL while Harry Podmore also came in. Adam Rouse and Zak Crawley the two to miss out.
Heavy rain at the start of the day reduced the match to 42 overs a side with the floodlight match starting at 3.30pm and Somerset batted first.
Matt Henry struck twice early in the Somerset innings to put the away side on the back foot.
He got Steven Davies (2) and Johann Myburgh (8) to leave them 17-2.
