Miscues cost Kansas baseball


— Twelve walks, three wild pitches, three errors and two passed balls doomed Kansas University to a 12-2 Big 12 baseball loss to Texas on Saturday at Disch-Falk Field.

Kansas (14-20 overall, 3-8 Big 12) surrendered three runs in the first and four in the third and eventually lost the series finale shortened to seven innings because of the mercy rule. UT (16-20, 7-5) won the series, two games to one.

Colby Wright (2-for-3) and Devin Foyle (2-for-2) led Kansas’ offense.

Jackson Goddard (2-3), the first of five KU pitchers, took the loss after allowing three runs off two hits over just one inning, with three walks and a strikeout.

Kansas will host Wichita State at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Hoglund Ballpark.
