The Wright State baseball team jumped out to a 7-0 third-inning lead before holding on down the stretch for a 10-8 win over Seton Hall Sunday at the Virginia Tournament in Charlottesville, Virginia.

WSU scored twice in the first on a Tristan Moore sacrifice fly and a Zach Tanner RBI single and added three more in the second as Corey Davis singled in a run, another came in on an error and Ryan Ashe plated the final run on a groundout.

The lead grew to 7-0 in the third as Justin Kopale hit his second home run in as many days, a two-run shot to left.

Seton Hall scored twice in the third and fifth before Wright State picked up a run in the seventh as Jake Hibberd doubled and scored on a Tanner hit through the left side.

After the Pirates made it 8-6 with two in the seventh, the Raiders tacked on two of their own in the eighth.  A Davis double and Ashe triple accounted for the first run, with Ashe later scoring on an error.

Seton Hall scored once in the eighth and tacked on another in the ninth, but Michael Schum recorded his second save of the season and in as many days by retiring the final three batters of the game in order.

Schum struck out three in 2.2 innings of relief while Jack Van Honr picked up his first collegiate win with 1.2 innings of relief.

Offensively, Davis and Kyle Mossbarger each had three hits for the Raiders while Tanner had two along with three RBI.

Wright State (3-6) kicks off the home portion of its schedule next weekend, March 9-11, with a three-game series against Southeast Missouri at Nischwitz Stadium.  The Raiders and Redhawks will play single games on Friday (6:30), Saturday (2;00) and Sunday (1:00).
