For the second time this season, junior shortstop Benjamin Sems cleared the fence two times, propelling the Jayhawks to a 15-1 victory in their season finale against Furman on Sunday. The junior's first home-run came early in the first inning, setting the tone for offensive showcase put on by Kansas through the remainder of the day. Sems' second long ball in the fourth kick started an eight-run inning for the Jayhawks.
