Jayhawks drop series finale to No. 2/2 Oklahoma

LAWRENCE, Kan. – In the series finale against No. 2/2 Oklahoma, the Sooners scored all their runs on four home runs, beating Kansas 8-0 at Arrocha Ballpark.

Oklahoma jumped out to an early three-run advantage off a three-run home run to left field in the first inning, and added their next run on a solo homer in the fifth. The Sooners tacked on four additional runs in the sixth off two home runs.
