Wright State Baseball Rallies for 6-4 Win Over Valparaiso
FAIRBORN -- The Wright State baseball team scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh and made that hold up for a 6-4 win over Valparaiso Saturday afternoon at Nischwitz Stadium.
Karch Kowalczyk gave the Crusaders a 1-0 lead with a solo home run in the second, only to see the Raiders tie it in their half of the frame as Brad Macciocchi reached second on an error and scored on a RBI single to center by Kieston Greene.
Valpo went back in front with a run in the fourth, but again WSU answered quickly, this time with two in the bottom of the fourth. Sean Murphy walked with one out and, one out later, Greene struck again, this time with a two-run homer to left, his second of the season.
Back came the Crusaders with two in the top of the fifth and Valpo held a 4-3 advantage as Wright State came to bat in the bottom of the seventh. A dropped foul ball with one out extended an at bat by Joe Ford and he took advantage by reaching on an infield single. Pinch-hitter John Brodner also reached on an error, but the next batter flied out to center for the second out.
A Michael Timm hit up the middle, though, tied the game and Jeff Limbaugh followed with a two-run double to right center to give WSU a 6-4 lead.
Valparaiso picked up a double in both the eighth and ninth, but could not drive in a run as Andrew Elliott earned his 13th save of the season with three strikeouts in the ninth. The 13 saves tie Elliott with Joe Smith (2006) and Michael Schum (2009) for the second-most saves in a season in team history, with Mark Squire's 15 in 1999 holding the record.
The win was the 30th of the season for Wright State, marking the eighth time in the last nine years that the Raiders have reached the 30-win plateau.
Following the game, the program helped raise $6,865 for the Vs. Cancer Foundation and Dayton Children's Hospital by having their heads shaved.
Greene finished with two hits and three RBI while Timm had two hits and Limbaugh two RBI for Wright State (30-19, 22-3 Horizon), which wraps up the home portion of its schedule Sunday with the final game of the Valparaiso series, starting at 1:00. Following the game, WSU's six seniors--Taylor Braun, Ford, Greene, Joey Hoelzel, Limbaugh and Jack Murphy--will be honored.
