OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Jackson Cramer’s three-run homer gave West Virginia the lead for good in a 10-9 win over Kansas in the opening game of the Big 12 baseball tournament Wednesday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Cramer’s blast highlighted No. 6 seed West Virginia’s eight-run explosion in the top of the seventh inning. Ryan McBroom went 3-for-5 for the Mountaineers (28-24).

Tucker Tharp went 4-for-4 with three RBIs for No. 3 seed Kansas (34-23).

West Virginia led 2-0 until Kansas exploded for four runs in the bottom of the fifth and sixth innings.

After West Virginia’s rally, Kansas scored once in the bottom of the eighth and trailed 10-9 heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Jayhawks had runners on first and second with two outs, but flied out to end the game.
