The Kansas baseball team dropped two games to Baylor Saturday in its first home action of the 2019 season.
Kansas suffered an 8-2 loss in the first game of the doubleheader at Hoglund Ballpark, as Baylor scored seven runs in the seventh inning. The Jayhawks (14-12, 0-5) then dropped an 8-0 decision to the Bears (20-6, 5-0) in the nightcap.
In the first game, junior starting pitcher Ryan Zeferjahn (3-1) got the nod and went six frames while allowing only one earned run. Baylor starting pitcher Paul Dickens (3-1) held the Jayhawks hitless through four innings until sophomore right fielder Blaine Ray blasted his first-career home run to give Kansas the lead in the fifth.
The series finale is slated for 1 p.m. Sunday.
