Brian Heere had three hits, including his third home run of the season, but it was not enough to overcome a furious Texas Tech rally. The Red Raiders scored nine runs combined in the seventh and eighth innings to overcome a four-run deficit in an 11-8 win over KU Sunday at Hoglund Ballpark.

The Jayhawks fall to 25-15-1 overall and 6-7-1 in the Big 12, while the Red Raiders improve to 23-20 and 9-8 in conference play.

Kansas trailed 2-1 when the game was suspended in the bottom of the fourth inning Saturday. However, in the sixth, KU sent 10 men to the plate and scored five runs to grab a 6-2 advantage. Heere started things with a solo homer, while James Stanfield and Jake Marasco each had two-run hits in the inning.

However, TTU answered with six runs in the top of the seventh. Red Raider catcher Jeremy Mayo had the big blow with a three-run homer to cap the rally.

Tony Thompson tied the game in the bottom of the seventh with his third round-tripper of the season, but the Red Raiders tallied three more runs in the eighth on a sacrifice fly and a two-run double by Nick Popescu.

The Jayhawks will conclude the three-game series this afternoon at approximately 1:35 p.m.
