The Wright State baseball team made it two straight wins at Penn State Saturday, jumping out to an early 4-1 lead en route to a 6-2 victory.
WSU opened the scoring with a pair of runs in the first. Kieston Greene led off with a walk and after going to third on a Cody Gardner bunt and a Garrett Gray flyout, scored on a double down the right field line off the bat of Kody Krizman. Michael Timm followed with a double down the left field line to plate Krizman.
Penn State cut the deficit in half with a run in the second, only to see the Raiders answer with two more in the third. With one out, Gray reached on an infield hit and another Krizman double put two runners into scoring position. A Timm grounder to second resulted in one run and a Nittany Lion error allowed the second run to score.
Wright State stretched the lead to 6-1 with two in the eighth on a RBI single by Justin Kopale and took advantage of another PSU error to produce the second run.
Raider starter Joey Hoelzel (2-2), meanwhile, allowed just the one run in seven innings of work while striking out five.
Gray and Timm each had three hits to lead the WSU offense while Krizman and Kopale had two hits each.
Wright State (12-15) goes for the series sweep Sunday with the game starting at 12:05.
