Home runs push KU baseball to 9-4 win


— Connor McKay belted out a grand slam, Chris Manship hit another home run, and Kansas University’s baseball team took down Minnesota, 9-4, on Saturday at the Golden Gopher Baseball Classic.

Both of KU’s home runs came during an eight-run second inning as the Jayhawks responded to a four-run first inning by the Golden Gophers. KU starting pitcher Frank Duncan settled in after the rough start and tossed six scoreless innings to pick up the win.

Kansas (8-7) will take on Indiana State in the Irish Baseball Classic at noon on Thursday in San Antonio.
