The Jayhawks also scored plenty of runs, scoring in all but four innings, capping off the night with a four-run ninth inning. Senior Jordan Richards finished with two hits on the night, leading Kansas.
The Jayhawks will face Ottawa University next Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 5:30 p.m., in another fall exhibition match.
