KU baseball falls to Zags


— Kansas University managed just two runs off six hits in a 7-2 college baseball loss to undefeated Gonzaga on Sunday, the Jayhawks’ third straight loss.

KU (5-5) scratched out single runs in the first and second innings, but the Bulldogs banged 14 hits off three KU pitchers.

Senior Andy Hunter (2-0) allowed both runs off all six hits, with eight strikeouts and no walks over eight innings.

Thomas Taylor (1-1) took the loss after giving up five runs — all earned — off 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings. He came in having hot allowed a run this season, a streak of 14 1/3 scoreless innings.

Offensively, Kevin Kuntz was 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI as the only Jayhawk with more than one hit.

KU will host North Dakota at 3 p.m. Tuesday in its home opener.

Can Zenger please fire Price if he misses the Big 12 tournament again this year? Missing the conference tournament half the time when only 2 teams miss it is pretty embarrassing and now that there's only 1 team that will miss the tournament this year since there are only 9 teams in the league (ISU doesn't compete in baseball), it would be even more embarrassing to miss the Big 12 tournament.

If you look closer at the game stats you'll see that Tanner Poope couldn't do the job in relief yesterday. When he gets his new role down, as everyone expects, then games like this one could easily turn the other way.

If we are going to suck in all non revenue sports, why even have them? Freaking drop them and spend the cash on facility upgrades or coaches salaries for football and basketball!
