A three-run first inning was too much to overcome as the Kansas baseball team dropped its second-straight contest at Oklahoma, 4-3, Saturday night at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
The Sooners (20-4, 2-0 Big 12) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after hitting up Kansas starter redshirt-junior Ryan Cyr (2-2) in the bottom of the first. Cyr gave up three walks, a double and a sacrifice fly in the frame, digging a hole for the Jayhawks (13-9, 0-2 Big 12) in a battle between league foes.
Cyr settled down and scattered three hits and another run before exiting the game after four and 2/3 innings pitched. Redshirt-junior Blake Goldsberry came on in relief and tossed one and 1/3 innings before sever weather hit and suspended play at 8:10 p.m.
Goldsberry retired all four batters he faced and the Jayhawks waited one hour and 38 minutes to resume play in the bottom of the seventh inning. Junior lefty Nathan Barry took the hill the final two frames and held the Sooners scoreless.
Juniors Brett Vosik and Benjamin Sems led the Jayhawks with identical 2-for-4 efforts and a RBI.
