I have done a poor job of covering K-State baseball with the end of the basketball season, but things will improve now. It's been a disappionting season so far for the Bat Cats, who stand 10-11 (0-3 Big 12). Things may be looking up after the Cats swept Binghampton at home last weekend and pounded Creighton midweek, 11-1.
Of course, Oklahoma State comes in ranked No. 22, and is 17-6 (3-3 Big 12). The Pokes can mash, leading the conference in team batting (.331 team average), and home runs (by far, 32 total, with second-place Oklahoma and Texas Tech at 23).
You can check out Corn Nation for more on all the Big 12 baseball this weekend. He's not too rosy about our prospects against the Cowboys, but we haven't given him much reason for optimism. A series win would be huge, but I'll settle for avoiding the sweep.
