The Horned Frogs improved to 2-0, while the Jayhawks fell to 0-2.
TCU starting pitcher Kyle Winkler and reliever Erik Miller held the Kansas offense to one run on one hit. The Jayhawks’ lone hit produced a run and tied the game at 1 in the fourth inning.
After second baseman Jordan Dreiling reached second base on an error and stole third, senior Brandon Macias drove in his first run of the season with a bounding ball up the middle.
“One run is never going to do it, especially against a team like this,” Macias said. “One hit and one run just can’t get it done.”
However, TCU answered with two runs in the fifth, seventh and eighth innings.
The three-game series concludes today.
