Kansas softball played into extra innings to decide the outcome, only this time found themselves on the losing end, as Wichita State surged past the Jayhawks, 6-1, on Tuesday evening at Arrocha Ballpark at Rock Chalk Park.
Sophomore third baseman Jessie Roane’s bat had three of the Jayhawks’ hits. She also drove in Kansas’ lone run with a second-inning home run.
Kansas ace Andie Formby pitched six strong innings, holding the visiting Shockers to one run through seven innings. But the sophomore ran out of gas in the eighth, giving up five runs in the top of the eighth and falling to 11-3 on the season.
