Kansas baseball drops opener


— Little Rock held Kansas University’s baseball team to four hits, and the Jayhawks dropped their season opener, 4-2, on Saturday.

Sophomore shortstop Matt McLaughlin drove in both of KU’s runs.

Senior Ben Krauth allowed four runs in five innings and took the loss.

“Ben Krauth had a tough day,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “He was behind in every inning and didn’t have good command of the fastball. He found a way to get through five innings.”

The Jayhawks will host Northern Colorado on Monday.

It's a marathon. Can't wait to see the team in Lawrence this year. Go Hawks.
