Kansas shuts out TCU 4-0, earns Big 12 title shot

WVU denied chance to play in championship

OKLAHOMA CITY — Michael Suiter hit a two-run home run and four Kansas pitchers combined on a shutout as the Jayhawks beat TCU 4-0 Saturday night to reach the Big 12 championship game and end West Virginia's hopes of a title appearance. WVU, a longshot for an at-large NCAA Tournament bid, likely saw its memorable season come to an end with the Jayhawk victory.

Robert Kahana (5-1) threw six shutout innings and Jordan Piche earned his 12th save after 2 1-3 innings of relief as sixth-seeded Kansas (34-24) earned a spot against No. 4 seed Oklahoma in Sunday's title game.

Kevin Kuntz had an RBI single in the third, and Alex DeLeon doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the sixth. Suiter tacked on his first home run in the seventh off Alex Young.

Cody Jones had three singles for TCU (29-28), which was eliminated from championship contention before the game started.

Horned Frogs starter Andrew Mitchell (1-2) gave up two hits and one run in five innings.
