Kansas 7, Missouri State 6

Kansas Head Coach Ritch Price:

on Nick Faunce’s game-winning home run…

“I’m just really thrilled for him (Faunce). He’s been struggling lately, and we’ve been trying to play the guys who are hot, especially since we’ve struggled on the mound. We’ve got to try to score enough runs to win, obviously. I’m thrilled for (Nick Faunce). He’s one of the hardest workers in our program. For him to get a clutch hit like that, hopefully that will get him jump-started.”

On the team’s momentum heading into Nebraska…

“I think the whole thing is that our starting pitching has been better. All season we’ve swung the bats and played defense, and the bullpen has been solid. We have just really struggled early with our starting pitching. Now we’re coming off three good starts, and if we can do that this weekend, we can win the series against Nebraska.”
