Jayhawks go deep to down Cardinal


— Ryne Price and Buck Afenir each hit two-run homers in a four-run fourth inning Saturday as the Kansas University baseball team knocked off No. 8 Stanford, 5-4, to earn its second straight victory over the Cardinal.

Senior right-hander Ricky Fairchild (2-0) was the beneficiary of the support, allowing three runs and scattering four hits in 51â3 innings.

A quintet of KU relievers did not allow a hit over the final 32â3 innings, with senior Don Czyz throwing a perfect ninth inning to earn his third save of the season.

Gus Milner had the lone multiple-hit game for the Jayhawks (6-1), going 2-for-4 at the plate.

KU will send senior Kodiak Quick - who started his career at Stanford - to the mound today as the Jayhawks look to sweep the three-game series. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
