Postgame Quotes

No. 23 Kansas 7, Missouri 4

May 9, 2009 – Columbia, Mo.

Kansas Head Coach Ritch Price:

On the win:

“Coming back to win today was absolutely huge. We got down early and T.J. (Walz) didn’t have his best stuff. He battled through six innings and kept us in the game, which is all we can ask. We had some great at bats in the middle part of the game and were able to get on top and the bullpen slammed the door.”

On the production of Casey Lytle and David Narodowski:

“When you win a conference game on the road, you need to get production throughout your lineup. Today we had our leadoff hitter and our No. 6 hitter both hit home runs and both have four hits. Both of them were very special today. I thought David struggled a little bit last night, but got it going right away in the first inning. (Casey) Lytle has been hot this week too.”

On Preston Land’s two-run single:

“That was a really big at bat for him early in the game. He doesn’t have a lot of hits (against Missouri), but he’s been able to come up with guys on base and drive them in for us. He’s in there for his defense and he’s in there to drive in runs, and he did both today.”
