KU softball splits

April 9, 2007


— Kansas University split a softball doubleheader with Texas on Sunday. The Jayhawks won the first game, 2-0, before dropping Game Two, 3-2.

KU pitcher Kassie Humphreys pitched 102â3 innings on the day.

In Game One, Dougie McCaulley's two-out second-inning hit to left field scored Humphreys from third base. Humphreys reached base on a lined shot down the right-field line.

Kansas scored one more run in the seventh inning to extend the lead to two. The scoring runner, McCaulley, was singled home from second base by sophomore Stevie Crisosto. The two runs scored by the Jayhawks are the most the team has scored against Texas since a 3-1 victory on May 2, 2004.

Humphreys struck out 11 Longhorns in her complete-game-shutout effort before pitching 32â3 innings to start Game Two.

The Longhorn attack got on track in the fourth inning of the second game, when UT tallied three runs. The key play of the inning came off a Jacqueline Williams single to center field that scored two Texas runners and made the score 3-1. All three runs were unearned.

Kansas' next game will be Wednesday at Missouri.
