In the opening inning, the game was two outs old before a 14-minute snow delay stopped action. After the delay, the Jayhawks loaded the bases before Barker struck out Justin Protacio to end the early threat.
Hayden Nielsen and Anderson teamed up to turn a 6-4-3 double play to keep Kansas from scoring in the second inning. The Cougars have turned a double play in 19 of 23 games this season.
Barker struck two out looking and induced a fly out to end the third inning. With a runner on third in the fourth, Barker got Dakota Smith to fly out in foul territory in right to keep the Jayhawks scoreless.
Next up for BYU is game one of the Deseret First Duel between Utah and the Cougars on Tuesday at 6 p.m. MDT at Spring Mobile Ballpark in Salt Lake City. The Cougars return home for a three-game series against Pepperdine beginning Thursday at 6 p.m. MDT.
