— Senior Robby Price and junior Casey Lytle each had three hits and two doubles, Brett Bochy pitched 21⁄3 innings of hitless relief, and the Kansas University baseball team knocked off No. 1 LSU, 11-9, on Friday night at Alex Box Stadium in front of 11,157 fans.

The Jayhawks improved to 10-3 overall, while LSU fell to 12-1.

KU won for the fourth straight time over LSU dating back to 2003. It was the Jayhawks’ fourth consecutive victory over a No. 1-ranked team.

Kansas broke it open in the second inning, sending 11 men to the plate and scoring six runs. Junior Jimmy Waters, senior Brett Lisher and sophomore James Stanfield started the inning with three consecutive hits to tie the score at 1.

The Jayhawks will look to take the three-game series at 2 p.m. today.

Awesome!

That's one heckuva feather in the cap.

Now, take one more to freeze 'em out for the series.

I graduated from KU in 88. Haven't seen a Jayhawk in uniform live in any sport since. Life's twists and turns brought me to Baton Rouge a few years ago. So I was there last night! Just awesome to cheer on the Hawks again in person. LSU is an awesome team, but KU showed some spunk last night.
As good as KU's offense was, they played some amazing defense. Two astounding diving catches in the outfield helped hold off LSU early in the game. There were a few KU fans there, not enough to get a rock chalk Jayhawk going or anything. Will try to get out to the game tomorrow too.

wissoxfan83.............Great story! Thanks for representing the Crimson & Blue in Baton Rouge! Rock Chalk!

Imagine how tough this team will be when we get back Tony Thompson, our best player!! Anybody making plans to head to Omaha, yet?

That's what LSU gets for playing a bunch of sissy teams! KU has made a tough schedule for itself and should be ranked. If we take at least 2 of the 3 we will most definitely be ranked once again. And yes, once we get Thompson back, we should have a great, great team!

I should mention the job Bochy did. LSU trimmed an 11-4 lead down to 11-9. He was nearly untouched in the 8th and 9th. Struck out the side in the 8th!

"It was the Jayhawks’ fourth consecutive victory over a No. 1-ranked team."

That's an impressive stat in any sport.
