After weeks on the road, the Kansas softball team finally played a game in Lawrence on Tuesday, shutting out Creighton, 8-0 in 6 innings.

The Jayhawks, who have outscored their opponents 107-50 so far this season, ran their winning streak to 10 in a row in improving to 13-5-1 on the season.

That's the longest winning streak for the program since 2015 and starting pitcher Kasey Hamilton's 3-hit, complete-game shutout, with 8 strikeouts, played a pretty big role in the win.

“I loved that we came out here and took care of business," KU coach Jennifer McFalls said after the win. "I thought Kasey was exceptional in the circle. She was feeling really good. The biggest thing that I love was that we got some answers from our bench tonight. We had some kids step in when they got their names called and just smoked the ball. I love their focus and energy. I think that’s great momentum heading into the tough first weekend of conference against UCF.” 

Hamilton is riding a streak of 28 consecutive scoreless innings and four straight complete-game shutouts.

KU travels to UCF this weekend for a three-game series with the Knights.

Here's a look back at some of the action from Tuesday's home win.
