Wright State Holds Off UD for Eighth Straight Win

FAIRBORN -- The Wright State baseball team led 5-1 after seven innings, but had to hold off a late Dayton rally before defeating the Flyers 5-4 Tuesday night at Nischwitz Stadium.
It was a scoreless pitcher's duel between WSU starter Jeremy Randolph and UD starter Mason Kutruff until the Flyers tallied an unearned run in the top of the fourth.
The Raiders, though, answered in a big way with four runs in their half of the fourth.  After hits by Sean Murphy and Ryan Fucci, Matt Morrow hit into a force out to put runners on the corners.  Jason DeFevers plated Murphy with a bunt single and Gabe Snyder followed with a hit to right to drive in Morrow and make it 2-1.
John Brodner then singled up the middle to knock in DeFevers and after walks to Roman and Fowler loaded the bases, Michael Timm also walked to force in the fourth run. Mark Fowler rounded out the scoring for Wright State in the sixth with a solo home run to left center, his third of the season.
That home run turned out to be the winning run for WSU as Dayton scored two in the eighth and added another in the ninth on a walk and double to start the frame.
The Flyers bunted the potential tying run to third, but Andrew Elliott preserved the Raider victory and earned his sixth save of the year by striking out the final two batters of the game.
Randolph (6-0) picked up the win, allowing just the unearned run in seven innings as he scattered four hits and no walks while striking out seven.
Offensively, Fowler finished a perfect three-for-three while Snyder added two hits.

Wright State (28-10) hosts Miami Wednesday at 6:30.

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jason Marquis ended Cincinnati's long streak of clutch-hitting futility with a run-scoring single, and slumping Jay Bruce homered and drove in three runs on Monday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds ended a three-game losing streak by beating the worst team in the majors, one that's trying everything to get going. Manager Ron Roenicke left slumping Ryan Braun out of the lineup on Monday to change things up.

All it led to was another loss that dropped the Brewers to 4-16.

Marquis (2-1) had an RBI single during a four-run second inning that snapped the Reds' 0-for-20 streak with runners in scoring position.

REDS-BAILEY

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Reds put starter Homer Bailey on the 15-day disabled list on Monday night with a sprained ligament in his right elbow, the same one he had surgery on last September.

Bailey was limited during spring training while he completed his comeback from surgery on the forearm where it attaches to the elbow. He made two starts, throwing 92 pitches in a 5-2 loss at St. Louis and 79 pitches in a 4-2 loss at Milwaukee.

Bailey is 0-1 with a 5.56 ERA. His next scheduled start was Thursday at Atlanta.

The Reds recalled right-hander Carlos Contreras from Triple-A Louisville. Contreras made 17 relief appearances last season, going 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA.

ROYALS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas and the Kansas City Royals kept AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber winless this season, beating the Cleveland Indians 6-2 Monday night.

Kluber (0-3) gave up six runs, four of them earned, and 10 hits in 6 1-3 innings. After going 18-9 last year, he hasn't won in five starts and has a 4.24 ERA.

Gordon drove in two runs, and had a go-ahead double in the sixth. Moustakas had four hits, including an RBI single in the seventh, and is 11 for 25 lifetime against Kluber.

The Indians committed a season-high three errors and have lost seven of 10.

Jason Vargas (2-1) gave up two runs in five innings.
