With Kansas coming to play a four-game series at Miller Park, BYU’s baseball team knows “there’s no place like home.”
The Cougars (9-11) have a 2-1 mark at Larry H. Miller Field and play Kansas (13-6) starting Wednesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. Game time for Friday has been moved from 6 p.m. to 3 p.m. because of weather. Saturday’s game remains at 1 p.m.
“We are looking forward to finally being back on our own field,” BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. “Kansas is having a great year, so we know they will be a challenge.”
Wednesday’s starting pitcher for BYU is Desmond Poulson (2-0, 2.29), followed by Adam Miller (1-4, 4.45 on Thursday evening. The Cougar starter in Friday’s modified starting time is Jeff Barker (2-2, 4.33). The BYU starter for Saturday’s game is yet to be named.
BYU is the nation’s No. 1 team in turning double plays, but the Cougars have struggled in other areas as they got off to an 0-3 start on the road in the West Coast Conference. BYU had a 2-1 record in games earlier this year at Miller Park against No. 21 UC Irvine.
Kansas has a 2-1 record in the Big 12 Conference.
BYUtv and KOVO Radio 960 AM are scheduled to broadcast the last three tilts of the four-game series between BYU and Kansas.
