The Wright State baseball team scored single runs in each of the first two innings, but was shutout the rest of the way as Cincinnati scored four in the sixth en route to a 6-2 decision Tuesday night at Nischwitz Stadium.
The Bearcats tallied an unearned run in the top of the first, only to see the Raiders do the same in the bottom of the inning. With two out and no one on base, Garrett Gray reached on an error and advanced to second as a pickoff throw got away from the first baseman. He then scored as Mark Fowler singled into right center.
WSU added another run in the second as John Brodner singled to right center, went to third on a Jason DeFevers bunt and a Justin Kopale ground out, and scored on Joe Ford's double to the gap in left center.
That turned out to be the final run of the game for the Raiders, however, as after being no-hit by Robby Sexton and E.J. Trapino for five hits, the Cincinnati offense came alive in the sixth with four runs on four hits. The Bearcats rounded out the scoring with a run in the ninth.
Fowler and Kody Krizman each had two hits for Wright State (10-15), who heads to Penn State this weekend for a three-game series, starting with a single game on Friday at 6:00.
