Big 12 Baseball Quotes & Notes

Kansas Jayhawks

LSU gets unlucky, but still deserved to lose (
Kansas' BABIP [batting average on balls in play] for the weekend was .420. LSU's was a more reasonable .338. That's 80 points of batting average and was the difference in the series: bad luck. Kansas batted balls just seemed to tail away from every outfielder or find a hole in the infield while LSU batted balls turned into hits at about the expected rate. LSU is a good defensive team, so it wasn't misplays by the fielders it was just Kansas living up to the old cliché, hitting the ball where they ain't.
Road Warriors (Baseball America)
It took a number of special performances for a banged-up Kansas team to win a series at Alex Box Stadium. Now the Jayhawks hope to use this series as a springboard heading into conference play, just as they did last year around this time when they grabbed headlines by sweeping Texas in the first weekend of Big 12 play.
Kansas State

College Baseball winners and losers (

Kansas State (13-2) – Yeah, so much for thinking the Wildcats are going to take a huge step back without starting pitchers A.J. Morris and Lance Hoge. This team is just fine after going a perfect 4-0 last week with a home series sweep of MAC representative Kent State. Brad Hill is doing a fantastic job with this club.

Oklahoma Sooners

Sooners do the little things, win (Norman Transcript)
It was far from the offensive barrage the Sooners have displayed several times over the first four weeks of the season. They entered Tuesday night’s opener of the two-game series averaging 8.23 runs per game.

Texas Tech Red Raiders

Tech coach Dan Spencer: "We'll adjust those things tomorrow. I didn't say a lot to them at the end of the night tonight. We'll adjust those things and try to correct them for A&M. We are what we are right now. We're kind of scuffling and that's a tough place to go when you're not playing well but that's what is next on the schedule."
