Kansas Softball drops important series vs Oklahoma State as pitching falters

Kansas really needed to win the series against OSU this past weekend but instead failed to register a single "W."  Fortunately for the Jayhawks, Sunday's game got rained out with KU trailing 2-0 in the third inning.  Oklahoma State takes on in-state rivals and conference leaders Oklahoma next weekend, so the Jayhawks still have a decent shot at finishing fourth in the Big 12.
