Caleb Littlejim squinted into the setting sun, rounding the bases seconds after he lined what looked like a extra-base hit over the wall, good for a two-run home run for Kansas State in the second inning.

It was a surprise homer, one that looked more like a double than a no-doubter, but the two runs gave K-State an early 5-1 lead over Omaha Wednesday evening.
