Kansas 8 at #29 Arkansas 9

Senior catcher Buck Afenir collected three hits and scored two runs, but it was not enough to offset a late rally by host Arkansas. The 21st-ranked Razorbacks used a Jacob House walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to send Kansas to a 9-8 non-conference loss at Baum Stadium Wednesday.

The Jayhawks, which held leads of 4-0 and 7-5 in the game, fall to 2-3 overall, while Arkansas improves to 4-1. The teams split the two-game midweek series after KU won 9-3 in Tuesday’s game.

After surrendering a two-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, KU fought back with a run in the top of the ninth to force extra frames.
