I don't have a link, but today's game is supposed to be on Fox Sports Southwest. So tune in cheer on your Red Raiders.
C'mon. When it seemed like Karns was back on track, he falls back off the wagon (that's two too many metaphors in one sentence). Nate Karns gave up 5 runs in the first 2.1 innings and the Red Raiders lost to the Kansas Jayhawks, 9-5. Karns' line is as follows, 8 hits, 5 runs, all earned, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. The normally reliable, James Leverton had his worst outing of the year, pitching only 0.2 innings, giving up 2 hits, and 2 runs. Cory Large did pitch well out of the pen, going 3.2 innings, giving up only 1 hit, 1 run, walking 1 and striking out 4.
The offense was just okay, producing 7 hits and 5 runs. The top of the order produced again (Kenworthy was 3-4 with 2 RBI and Rueda was 1-5 with 2 RBI), but the meat of the order (Kieschnick, Thennis and Richburg) went 2-14 with 1 RBI.
LAJ's George Watson recaps the game, and noted that it was Texas Tech that struggled with the a lot of the things that the Jayhawks had been struggling with.
Cory Large on his good performance:
