The Kansas State dugout celebrates

The Kansas State dugout celebrates a home run by Wildcat infielder Jeff Heinrich (9) during the first game of its weekend series versus Kansas on Friday. K-State lost that game but ended up taking the next two games for the series victory.

It took Kansas State seven innings to break through against Kansas’ starting pitcher Ryan Vanderhei.

Other than a solo home run by Jeff Heinrich in the bottom of first inning, the Wildcats had trouble hitting against him. With a little bit of fortune and relentlessness, the Wildcats were able to mount a comeback and defeat the in-state rival Kansas 6-3 Sunday at Tointon Family Stadium for the weekend series win.
