MANHATTAN -- A walk-off double Monday night by Jordan Cruz in the 10th inning lifted No. 10 Kansas State past BYU, 9-8.

For the second game in a row, BYU lost in the 10th inning. Both the Wildcats, now 36-11-1, and Cougars , now 24-20, were rained out of their final games last weekend in Oklahoma and Texas, respectively.

Back-to-back solo homers by Kasey Ko, who hit his second dinger of the day, and Chad Nacapoy tied the score at 8-all in the ninth with no out as BYU battled back from a 7-2 deficit.

The Cougars got off to a good start with Sean McNaughton singling to left center and advancing to third on Stetson Banks’ single to left. McNaughton then scored on Kent Walton’s ground out to shortstop.

KSU also advanced a runner to third with no out in the first, but Nacapoy threw out a runner trying to steal second and the Wildcats ended the inning grounding into a 6-4-3 double play.

Carter Jurica hit a two-out triple to right center and Nick Martini doubled down the leftfield line in the third as KSU took a 3-1 lead, due in part to a couple of throwing errors by BYU’s catcher.

Both teams went down in order in the fourth. Ko brought the Cougars within one, 3-2, in the fifth from his solo homer to center.

KSU widened its lead in the fifth to 6-2, starting when Dane Muenster doubled to center with no outs just after starter Adam Miller was relieved from the mound by Brandon Michon.

McNaughton hit a lead-off double in the eighth and scored off Walton’s one-out triple to right center. Walton scored off Steve Parker’s double to leftfield to put the score at 7-4 favoring KSU. Then Michael Bowen hit a two-out homer to left center to bring the Cougars within one, 7-6.

BYU ace reliever Jordan Muir retired the side in order in the ninth with the score knotted at 8-8, but gave up a lead-off walk in the 10th which scored on the double by Cruz.

The two teams square off again Tuesday evening.
