Kansas State baseball won on Day 2 Saturday against UMass Lowell with a strong 17-3 win. K-State starting pitcher Jacob Frost earned the win with 5 2/3 innings pitched and five strikeouts.

Both teams had a great defensive stretch and didn’t allow scoring until the third inning. In the top of the third, the River Hawks only scored one run compared to six Wildcat runs. A highlight-worthy play occurred when catcher Cayden Phillips singled to right center and gained 3 RBI. 

In the next two innings, the River Hawks didn’t allow the Wildcats to score any runs. The closest they got to home base was when shortstop Kaelen Culpepper advanced to third off of a single from second baseman Brady Day. 

In the bottom of the sixth inning, outfielder Brendan Jones hit a homerun to centerfield, raising the score to 8-2. 

The Wildcats allowed the River Hawks one final run in the top of the seventh before the Wildcats turned on the burners. 

In the bottom of the seventh inning, outfielder Chuck Ingram and Jones both scored runs, leaving the Wildcats up 11-3 by the end of the inning. 

The Wildcats had a spectacular eighth inning. After scoring two runs, right fielder Nick English hit a grand slam to left field, bringing the score to 17-3. 

The River Hawks were not able to gain any runs in the ninth inning, and ultimately lost again to the Wildcats. 

This blowout victory places K-State at a 6-3 record. The Wildcats will finish out the series Sunday at 1 p.m.
