Chalk it up as a Bat Cats sweep of that team down the river.
It didn't look good going into the bottom of the ninth Sunday, as KU held a 10-9 lead. And you know, I almost feel sorry for a team whose season ends on a hit-by-pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth.
What do they call that, a walk-off plunking?
Anyway, the win sends K-State to Oklahoma City this week for the Big 12 baseball championship. Here is the schedule for the week:
Wednesday, May 21, 7:30 p.m.: K-State vs. Oklahoma State
Friday, May 23, 4:00 p.m.: K-State vs. Nebraska
Saturday, May 24, 7:30 p.m.: K-State vs. Baylor
We need to have the best record among the teams in our pool to advance to the championship Sunday, 1:00 p.m. I won't be able to do a lot of updating as I am traveling to Indianapolis (yes, I'm going to The 500) this weekend, but you can be sure I'll be following the proceedings and cheering the Bat Cats on.
