Omaha, Neb. The Kansas University baseball team gave up seven extra-base hits and lost 7-3 to Creighton on Tuesday at TD Ameritrade Ballpark.
Kansas used five different pitchers in the game as Creighton slowly built its lead hit by hit. The Bluejays and Jayhawks were tied in the fourth inning, before a double-double-single sequence opened Creighton’s advantage to 4-2. KU’s Tucker Tharp hit his first home run of the year to narrow the gap to 4-3, but the Bluejays ended the game on three unanswered runs.
Kansas pitcher Colin Toalson, who surrendered two runs on four hits, took the loss. KU starter Drew Morovick pitched two innings for just two hits, but Creighton scored two unearned to start the game.
The Jayhawks (12-16 overall, 2-4 Big 12) will take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys at 6:30 p.m. on Friday in Stillwater.
