KU baseball rolls, 14-1

February 27, 2012


— Senior Zac Elgie and freshman Joey Luvisi each hit a three-run home run, and four Kansas University pitchers allowed just one run off five hits over seven innings in a 14-1 college baseball rout of winless Mississippi Valley State on Sunday.

The lopsided victory ended a two-game losing streak for KU (5-2). MVSU fell to 0-6.

After allowing a run in the top of the first, Kansas won it with a 10-run bottom, when Elgie hit his three-run shot and catcher James Stanfield had two run-scoring hits.

Drew Morovick (1-0) won in his first collegiate start. He allowed the one earned run off three hits, with seven strikeouts and a walk in five innings.

Offensively, Kansas collected 12 hits.

Elgie was 2-for-3 with four RBIs. Stanfield and Alex DeLeon each added two hits. Stanfield and Luvisi each had three RBIs. And Kevin Kuntz was 1-for-1 with two RBIs and three runs.

Kansas will travel to San Antonio next weekend for the UTSA Classic, which the Jayhawks will open at 6 p.m. Friday against host UTSA.
