Kansas at Wichita State

KU lineup - SS Macias, 2B Price, CF Heere, 3B Thompson, LF Waters, RF Lytle, C Stanfield, DH Marasco, 1B Lisher

Tonight starts a big week for the Shockers. Dreams of getting into the regional at-large picture are unrealistic. The Shockers can salvage some aspects of the season by winning the MVC regular season. A good start tonight and Wednesday against Oklahoma State would help send the Shockers into the weekend series at MVC-leader Illinois State. It’s all about the MVC Tournament now, so it would be helpful if the Shockers could play consistently good baseball for five days, which is basically what they will need to do in the tournament.
