WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A six-run outburst in the fourth inning gave Wichita State all the scoring it needed Tuesday as the Shockers beat Kansas 6-4.

The Jayhawks jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the third inning before Wichita State (31-7) responded an inning later. Kansas (25-19) got one run in the sixth and two in the seventh, but it wasn't enough to overtake the Shockers.

Clinton McKeever had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Wichita State offense, while Andy Dirks added a pair of RBIs.

John Allman and Tony Thompson each homered for the Jayhawks.

Tyler Fleming (3-1) gave up four hits and one run in four innings to record the win. Shaeffer Hall gave up six runs on eight hits in 3 2-3 innings to take the loss.
