The Kansas baseball team got the biggest win in recent program history on Friday night, knocking off the Horned Frogs by a 4-3 count.
Kansas put up two runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to take the lead and held off the Frogs in the 9th to secure the victory.
Kansas SP Ben Krauth struggled early on, especially by his standards, giving up a solo home run in the first inning and allowing another on a bases loaded HBP in the 4th inning. However, despite having runners on in every inning those were the only two runs TCU could get off the Jayhawk southpaw.
Krauth's final line: 6 IP, 5 H, 4 BB, 9 K, 2 R
TCU stranded 13 runners and went just 1-17 with runners in scoring position.
Kansas coach Rich Price was most impressed with KU's defensive effort Friday night:
"It was a great team win for us," head coach Rich Price said. "We played well in every phase of the game today and I can't say enough about the performance of our team defense. We might have taken five or six runs off the board when it was all said and done. Just tremendous defense all the way around."
The weekend series continues tonight at Hoglund Ballpark. First pitch is at 6 PM. The game will be available on ESPN3 and the Jayhawk Television Network.
