Junior Brendan Jones talks with his third base coach after stealing third against Omaha on April 23. Kansas State baseball won 6-4 at Tointon Family Stadium.

Kansas State baseball suffered its worst loss of the season Wednesday night against Nebraska. The Wildcats failed to collect a hit through nine innings, suffering an 8-0 loss. Cornhusker starting pitcher Jackson Brockett stayed on the mound for all nine innings, striking out 12 as three runners made it on base.

Brockett made quick work of the Wildcat bats all night, throwing just 107 pitches while facing 29 batters. 

K-State gave Brockett his biggest challenge in the fifth inning. After a throwing error allowed catcher Raphael Pelletier to make it to first base, left fielder Chuck Ingram walked to bring runners to first and second with one out. The Cornhuskers bounced back with a double play off third baseman Jaden Parsons’ bat. The only other runner to advance on base for K-State was designated hitter Jayden Lobliner off a walk in the ninth inning.

On the mound for K-State, Josh Wintroub got the start, pitching just 2 1/3 innings and allowing an unearned run. Wintroub suffered the loss, moving his record to 2-3. Six other relievers took the field for the Wildcats, with pitchers JJ Slack, Blake Dean and Adam Arther allowing six of the final seven runs in less than three innings combined. 

The loss moves K-State’s record to 26-18 on the season. It was the second no-hitter this season after the Wildcats’ Jacob Frost and Jackson Wentworth threw a combined no-hitter against Cincinnati. 

Next up is the Jayhawks off an 8-1 win over Wichita State, which marked Kansas’ seventh straight win. The Sunflower Showdown series begins at 6 p.m. Friday in Manhattan.
