Kansas State, one of four teams tied in the bottom of the Big 12 Conference baseball standings, will have a chance to break away from the pack this weekend.
The Wildcats (19-18, 3-9 in the Big 12) travel to Missouri (18-17, 3-9 in the Big 12) for a three-game series beginning tonight at 6.
This marks the second-half of Big 12 play, something K-State is excited to get under way as the schedule lightens up somewhat. The Wildcats have already played the top four teams in the league. Those teams have combined to go 40-14 in Big 12 play.
Over the next few weeks, the combined conference record of K-State’s opponents is just 12-43.
K-State, which will look to end a four-game losing streak in league play, enters the weekend on the heels of a two-game sweep of Northern Colorado this week at Tointon Family Stadium.
The Tigers were swept by Oklahoma last weekend, but they should be well rested after not playing a mid-week series this week.
The Wildcats are in search of their first series win in Big 12 play.
If they K-State is able to win that coveted Big 12 sereis, it would mark the first series victory over the SEC-bound Missouri Tigers since 2004.
