Due to heavy rain and lightning in the Manhattan area on Saturday, the second game of the series between Kansas State and No. 5 Baylor was suspended with the Wildcats leading, 10-8, in the top of the sixth. The game will be resumed at 12 p.m., Sunday, while the series finale will be played 30 minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game.
With the game tied at 4-4 in the fifth inning, Kansas State scored six runs in the bottom half to take a 10-4 lead. K-State loaded the bases with one out when Dan Klein walked before Jake Brown ripped a two-RBI single to give the Wildcats a 7-4 advantage.
After a fly out and a walk loaded the bases again, Jared King hit a ground ball to Baylor shortstop Jake Miller whose throw went past second baseman Lawton Langford and allowed all three runs to score as the Cats jumped ahead by six runs.
However, Miller made up for his mistake in the top of the sixth with a three-run homer before a Langford double made the score 10-8.
After a single put runners on the corners with one out, lightning and rain forced a delay. An hour later, game officials decided to suspend play until Sunday afternoon.
