Strong pitching and timely hitting paced the Kansas baseball team to a 6-1 victory over Ball State Sunday morning at North Charlotte Park in the Snowbird Classic.
The Jayhawks (11-3) rode redshirt-freshman lefty Eli Davis (2-1) through a career-high seven-inning outing to notch their seventh-straight victory. Davis struck out six batters in the performance compared to one walk and four hits.
Junior left fielder Brett Vosik got things going with a two-run triple in the top of the first, and KU added a run in the fourth, sixth, eighth and ninth for good measure. Junior shortstop Benjamin Sems led the Jayhawks with three RBIs while the top seven batters in the lineup each recorded at least one base knock.
Kansas continues the Snowbird Classic at 9 a.m. Tuesday against Central Connecticut State.
