Wichita State’s baseball team heads to Manhattan on Tuesday to face a Kansas State team on a five-game winning streak.

The Wildcats (23-10) completed a three-game home sweep over Texas Tech last weekend and have won 11 of their last 13 games. K-State is 13 games over .500 for the first time since its 2011 NCAA Tournament team.

K-State’s .331 batting average is tops in the Big 12 and ranks third nationally. Wildcats outfielder Jon Davis was Big 12 player of the week after hitting .529 last week with a homer and eight RBIs. He’s hitting .340 and is in the conference’s top 10 in eight offensive categories.

Wichita State is scheduled to start Cowley College transfer Drew Palmer (0-0, 4.58 ERA). K-State will start right-hander Jake Doller (2-2, 1.95).

Wichita State returns home Wednesday to face McPherson College, a game scheduled after the season began to make up for lost games to weather. Game time is 6:30 p.m. The Shockers play a three-game series at Bradley beginning Friday night.
