Topeka native and Seaman High School graduate Ryan Zeferjahn stole the show at Friday’s Sunflower Showdown. Zeferjahn went 7.1 scoreless innings striking out 8 and allowing just 3 hits as Kansas downed Kansas State 10-0. He became the first KU pitcher ever to record back to back 100 strikeout seasons.
“”I didn’t really know coming in that there hadn’t been two back-to-back and I kind of saw the sign and then everyone told me,” said Zeferjahn. “It’s kind of cool and surreal. All the guys that have come through here and all those great pitchers, to have that accomplishment really means something to me.”
K-State had just 3 hits in the entire game while Kansas had 13. Benjamin Sems and Dylan Ditzenberger both drove in 2 runs each for the Jayhawks.
Game 2 in Saturday at 11 A.M. from Lawrence.
