The Kansas baseball team came on the wrong end of two close ballgames during a doubleheader against West Virginia Saturday at Monongalia County Ballpark.
Kansas dropped the series opener, 1-0, in walk-off fashion. Ryan Cyr gave up a homer to Marquez Inman in the bottom of the ninth. Other than that, Cyr allowed seven hits over eight innings to go along with four strikeouts and two walks.
In the second game, KU (19-18, 4-10 Big 12) suffered a 4-3 loss in 11 innings. Down by two runs in the ninth inning, the Jayhawks rallied to tie the game and send it to extras. Senior center fielder Rudy Karre singled to left field, bringing in juniors James Cosentino and Benjamin Sems. Redshirt-junior Blake Goldsberry gave up the game-winning run in the 11th.
The series finale is slated to begin at 12 p.m. Sunday.
