The Wright State baseball team led 1-0 early, only to see Milwaukee score seven in the fourth and two in the sixth en route to a 9-3 decision Friday afternoon at Henry Aaron Field.
WSU opened the scoring with a run in the second as Ryan Ashe led off with a hit to center, went to second on a Michael Timm bunt and scored an out later as Justin Kopale singled up the middle.
Milwaukee, however, exploded with seven in the fourth, including a Jim Lundstrom two-run single, and added two more in the sixth to go up 9-1.
Garrett Gray had a two-run single in the seventh to drive in Sam Picchiotti and Kyle Mossbarger, but the Raiders would get no closer.
Tristan Moore and Mossbarger paced the WSU offense with two hits each.
With the loss and Valparaiso's 8-7, 11 inning win over Youngstown State, Wright State (36-18, 20-9 Horizon) trails the Crusaders by one game in the league standings heading into the final day of the regular season Saturday. WSU and UWM play at 1:00 Eastern while Valpo and YSU play at 2:00 Dayton time. If the Raiders win and the Crusaders lose, Wright State wins the tiebreaker and earns the top seed in next week's Horizon League Tournament due to a 4-2 edge in the season series between the two teams.
