Kansas baseball takes down Texas in Big 12 Tournament
ARLINGTON, TX. (WIBW) - The Jayhawks came in as the No. 8 seed and knocked off top seeded Texas, 6-3 at Globe Life Field.
The Jayhawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead after a sac fly from Chase Jans and an RBI single from All-Big 12 Co-Freshman of the Year in Kodey Shojinaga.
The Longhrns would eventually tied the game in the sixth inning after Kansas led 2-1 in the third inning.
But then All-Big 12 First Team selection Janson Reeder blasted a Grand Slam in the seventh inning and that’s all the Jayhawks would need.
