#4 Kansas State (39-15-1) vs. #5 Kansas (37-19)
First pitch 9AM
Kansas State has decided to hold back Big-12 Pitcher of the Year A.J. Morris and start Lance Hoge instead. Hoge (5-4) is a left handed senior. In 61.2 Innings he has given up 63 hits and has a 4.53 ERA. He has struck out 40 and walked 19, so he is a solid opponent. KU roughed him up on Saturday, scoring 5 runs on him in only two innings. Hoge was pulled after 57 pitches so he should be fresh for Wednesday's game. KU will send Shaeffer Hall to the mound. Hall is 4-6 with a 4.60 ERA in 78.1 innnings. Hall pitched 5.2 innings on Friday (81 pitches) in KU's 4-1 loss in Manhattan.
