Kansas put three more runs on the board in the bottom of the fourth inning, this time of Junior Pitcher Brady Nowak and took a 7-0 lead into the fifth. For the second straight inning the Vikings go their leadoff man aboard as Junior First Baseman Josh Hartin reached on an error. Hartin eventually reached third base, but was left stranded to end the inning. After Kansas failed to score in their fifth inning at-bat, the Vikings put their leadoff man on base for the third straight inning in the sixth when Freshman Leftfielder Anthony Patchin reached on an error, but again the Vikings failed to get the runner across home plate. After Kansas was kept scoreless for the second straight inning in the bottom of the sixth, and the Vikings put another runner on base in the seventh inning when Hartin laced a two-out single into leftfield, but he was left stranded. Kansas put three more runs on the board in the bottom of the seventh inning and extended their lead to 10-0. The lone Viking run came in the top of the eighth inning. With Junior Pinch Hitter Tyler Siem on first after reaching on a walk, Freshman Second Baseman Bryce Ash put one into rightfield, which was eventually misplayed. The error allowed Siem to score and Ash to take second base. Siem's run capped off the scoring with Kansas downing MVC 10-1.
