KU baseball falls to Utah


Dalton Carroll pitched a six-hitter, and Utah used two home runs to defeat Kansas University, 5-1, on Saturday in college baseball at Hoglund Ballpark.

“I think it was all Carroll today,” KU coach Ritch Price said. “He was 92-94 mph all day, and we weren’t able to get his pitch count up enough to get him out of the game. I compliment him. He threw first-pitch strikes to almost every single hitter that went up there.”

Cody Scaggari and AJ Young homered for Utah.

KU sophomore Sean Rackoski (0-2) yielded two runs in 61⁄3 innings.

“It was a step forward for Rackoski,” Price said. “This is the deepest he has pitched into a game. He gave us a good performance, and we look forward to him getting better each week.”

The Jayhawks (6-9) will meet Utah (3-11) in the series final at 1 p.m. today at Hoglund.
