A doubleheader with a double walk-off. No. 20 West Virginia took both games vs. Kansas on Saturday, making it four consecutive series wins for the Mountaineers.

In game one of the day, right handed pitcher Alek Manoah had another electric performance. In the complete game shutout, the junior struck out 15, allowed three hits, no walks and no errors.

Marques Inman delivered the walk-off homerun in the ninth, sealing the 1-0 victory.

Kansas took the lead in game two following a solo shot in the top of the sixth. Paul McIntosh responded with one of the same in the bottom of inning, leveling it at 1-1. A weather delay that last 2:40 followed. The Mountaineers went ahead 3-1 in the eighth, but the Jayhawks tied it a 3-3 with a two-out, two-RBI single in the ninth. Brandon White scored on a wild pitch in the 11th inning to sweep the doubleheader vs. Kansas.

“Just when I thought there’s no way to have a less exciting walk-off than a four-pitch walk, here comes a walk-off passed ball with a man on 3rd,” laughed head coach Randy Mazey. “It’s so hard to win a doubleheader no matter who you play. We actually played pretty good after the delay, but they but they did, too. They did a good job, their pitchers grinded it out. We have to use everybody on this team to win games usually and we had to do it again today.”

No. 20 West Virginia has now won 10 of its last 12 contest. The Mountaineers go for the series sweep of the Jayhawks on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Monongalia County Ballpark.
