STATS

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Iowa State junior Erica Miller hit the 27th home run of her career Friday, tying her with Erica Martinez (2000-03) for the most home runs in school history as the Cyclones (13-29, 1-12 Big 12) fell to Kansas (27-15, 4-12 Big 12), 8-2.

After loading the bases with a double from Sara Davison, a walk to Tori Torrescano and Dalyn Varela's 19th career hit-by-pitch, the Cyclone bats were silent until Miller knocked Alicia Pille's 1-0 offering over the left field wall for Iowa State's second hit of the game.

Kansas got the run back in the bottom of the fourth as Torrescano surrendered back-to-back singles and Mariah Montgomery doubled to right, driving in pinch runner Kelsey Alsdorf and putting runners at second and third with no outs. Torrescano got out of the jam, coaxing a strikeout and a grounder to shortstop before walking Elsa Moyer to load the bases. Pinch hitter Rosie Hull popped up to the Cyclone hurler to end the threat.

Kansas blew the game open in the sixth inning, scoring seven runs on seven hits, including a lead-off home run by Lexi Bryant, and two Cyclone errors to send the game to the final frame with the Jayhawks leading, 8-1.

Torrescano (7-20), exited with one out in the sixth after throwing 5.1 innings, giving up four runs on eight hits, walking three and striking out five.

Amber Ewert led off the Cyclone seventh with a double just inside the left field line, advancing to third on a wild pitch and scoring on Davison's single up the middle for the final of 8-2.

Pille (14-8) completed the game for Kansas, pitching seven innings, giving up six hits and two runs, walking five batters and striking out three.

The teams will be back in action at Arrocha Ballpark on Saturday at 2 p.m. CST.
