K-State downs Creighton to even series

Ross Kivett went two for five and scored a pair of runs and Jared Moore won for the fifth time in six decisions as the Kansas State Baseball team defeated Creighton 8-5 Saturday afternoon at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb. in the middle game of a three-game non-conference weekend series.

Despite scoring runs in five of the first six innings of the game, the Wildcats held just a 6-5 lead over the Blue Jays who won the series opener Friday night 4-3. In the top of the eighth inning however, K-State picked up the insurance it needed on R.J. Santigate’s RBI single and a sacrifice fly by Tanner DeVinny. Moore who was shaky at times lasted long enough to get the victory while Jake Whaley and Ethan Landon held the Blue Jays to just two hits over the game’s final four frames.

Kansas State (16-10) will wrap up the series on Sunday with Creighton as the Bat Cats will look for their fourth road win of the season. First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
