The Red Raiders jumped out to an early lead, scoring three runs in the first inning off KU starting pitcher Lexy Mills. Mills was relieved by Kirsten Pruett, who pitched the next 2.1 innings while allowing four earned runs.
Kansas (15-28, 3-8) responded in the second inning, scoring two runs of its own off a Miranda Rodriguez single. KU had the bases loaded with one out, but was unable to produce any runs after the initial two runs.
After opening the bottom of the second inning, the Jayhawks and Red Raiders were forced to wait through a delay, which forced KU pitcher Pruett back to the bullpen to warm up.
Once play resumed, Texas Tech added two runs to its total before the Jayhawks were able to record the last out of the inning.
Both teams were held scoreless in the third inning. TTU added another two runs in the fourth and three runs in the fifth.
Kansas concludes play against No. 12/15 Texas Tech tomorrow at 11 a.m., at Rocky Johnson Field.
