The Wright State baseball team could not overcome an Urbana six-run sixth as the Raiders dropped a 6-4 decision to the Blue Knights Wednesday night at Nischwitz Stadium.

The game was scoreless until Urbana took advantage of three hits, five walks and two errors in scoring all six of its runs in the top of the sixth.

WSU answered right back, though, with three in its half of the sixth.  A Kieston Greene single and a John Brodner triple produced one run and a Garrett Gray sacrifice fly to center drove in Brodner with the second run.  Kody Krizman then followed with a shot down the right field line for his second home run of the season to make it 6-3.

The Raiders cut the deficit to two in the eighth as Krizman singled to left, went to second on a wild pitch and scored on a Mark Fowler hit to right.  The Raiders then had the potential tying runs on base in the ninth, but came away empty.

Greene, Brodner and Krizman each had two hits for Wright State (18-22), who begins a stretch of five games in five days Friday with an 11 am contest at Youngstown State.
