The Kansas Jayhawks broke open a tie game in the seventh inning and posted a 10-6 win over the Kentucky Wildcats in the opener of the NCAA Louisville Regional, on a sticky Friday afternoon at Jim Patterson Stadium. Kentucky (35-24) fell behind early to the Jayhawks after allowing three runs in the top of the first inning, ending the start for UK’s sophomore Kyle Cody after just one out. After the two teams sat through a 60 minute rain delay, the Wildcats answered with a game-tying, three-run homer in the bottom of the first inning from Ka’ai Tom. After getting two quick outs in the second inning, KU got two, two-out walks and three straight singles to plate the go-ahead runs. UK answered with a run in the third and two in the fourth inning, before a nearly two hour rain delay halted the game in the bottom of the fifth. After the teams traded a shutout frame in the sixth, Kansas got two hits to start the seventh inning, plating two in the frame and adding two in the eighth. The Wildcats will now face Kent State after they lost to the Louisville Carnivals, 5-0, late Friday night. The elimination game is slated for 1 p.m. ET at Jim Patterson Stadium and will be televised live on ESPN3. The game will also be broadcast live on the UK IMG Radio Network, with the Voice of UK Baseball, Neil Price, calling the action. Fans in Central Kentucky can hear the game live on WLAP 630-AM, in Louisville on WKJK 1080-AM and online at UKathletics.com.
