Box Score

CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati baseball team built an early four-run lead it could not protect, ultimately losing to Wright State University 6-5 Wednesday night at Marge Schott Stadium.

Despite getting out-hit by WSU 13-6, Cincinnati (24-19, 10-8 BIG EAST) held the lead through most of the game after jumping out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning.

With one out in the bottom of the first inning, freshman DH Justin Glass (Fort Wayne, Ind./Carroll) lined a single to center field that scored sophomore CF Jake Proctor (Cincinnati, Ohio/Oak Hills) from second to put UC up 1-0. The following batter, senior LF Justin Riddell (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic), belted a first-pitch home run over the left-field wall off Wright State RHP Joey Hoelzel that gave the Bearcats an early three-run lead. The longball was Riddell's sixth of the season.

After senior Chris Peters (Tipp City, Ohio/Tipp City) reached base on a throwing error and advanced to second on a fielder's choice in the second inning, Glass drove him in on a two-out single to left field, putting Cincinnati ahead 4-0.

Sophomore LHP Thomas Gentile (Westerville, Ohio/St. Francis DeSales) found himself in a jam in the top of the fourth inning after loading the bases with just one out. Raiders LF Dan Marsh slapped a single to left field that drove in two runs, cutting UC's lead in half at 4-2. Gentile retired the next two batters to prevent further damage.

The Raiders threatened to take the lead in the fifth inning. WSU RF Tristan Moore led off the fifth with a triple and scored on a groundball to right side of the infield, which wound up scored an error. Wright State attempted a squeeze play with runners on second and third and one out, but Gentile quickly scooped the groundball and fired to the catcher Nick Rohlfs (Loveland, Ohio/Moeller) to tag out the runner at home. Gentile then retired the next batter to end the fifth, but did not return. Gentile's final line read five innings pitched, three runs (three earned) on nine hits, two walks and one strikeout.

 

 

Senior RHP Brian Sand (Cincinnati, Ohio/Oak Hills) entered the game in the sixth inning and was pulled after an infield error and a walk gave Wright State runners on first and second with no outs. Fellow senior RHP Dan Glozer (North Royalton, Ohio/North Royalton) replaced Sand and surrendered an RBI single to the first batter he faced that tied the game 4-4. Glozer then retired the ensuing three batters to get out of the inning.

WSU broke through in the eighth inning to take its first lead of the game. With two outs and bases empty, Raiders 3B Jake Hibberd homered to left field to put Wright State ahead 5-4.

The Bearcats had an opportunity to take control of the game in the bottom of the eighth, starting when junior catcher Jake Saylor (Chandler, Ariz./Hamilton) singled to center field with one out. Consecutive walks loaded the bases with just one out when Peters slapped a groundball to first base that allowed Saylor to cross home plate and tied the game 5-5. With runners now on the corners and two outs, Proctor stepped up to the plate but could not deliver after going down swinging.

Heading into the ninth inning tied, LHP Cory Hough (Springboro, Ohio/Springboro) entered the game in hopes of preventing WSU from taking the lead. However, WSU SS Zach Tanner led off with a single to left field and was driven in on C Ryan Ashe's triple to right-center field, giving Wright State a 6-5 lead.

In Cincinnati's final at-bats, the Bearcats went down 1-2-3 in the ninth to end the game.

UC plays a three-game BIG EAST series at West Virginia University starting with a doubleheader on Saturday. Game 1's first pitch is scheduled at 2 p.m. with senior RHP Dan Jensen (Centerville, Ohio/Centerville) taking the mound.
