KU baseball falls short at Oklahoma

A four-run seventh-inning rally was not enough Sunday afternoon at L. Dale Mitchell Park, as the Kansas baseball team lost its third-straight game at Oklahoma by a 10-5 margin.

The Jayhawks (13-10, 0-3 Big 12) exploded for four runs in the top of the seventh inning after OU starter Levi Prater (5-1) had held them to just one run off two hits the first five frames.

Senior center fielder Rudy Karre drove in two of those runs off a single up the middle with the bases loaded. Junior second baseman James Cosentino followed suit with a two-RBI double to right center. Both those knocks came off of Sooner relief pitcher Jaret Godman.

KU redshirt-freshman starter Eli Davis (2-3) made his Big 12 debut and got knocked around through four and 1/3 innings pitched where he gave up seven runs off 10 hits. Karre led all hitters with three RBIs. Sophomore third baseman Skyler Messinger finished the day 2-for-3 with two runs scored, while Cosentino drove in a pair of runs.

Kansas travels to Missouri State on Wednesday.
