Wright State Baseball Falls in Series Finale at Youngstown State

FAIRBORN -- The Wright State baseball team held a 3-0 lead through five innings, but a six-run sixth turned out to be the difference as Youngstown State defeated the Raiders 6-3 Sunday at Eastwood Field.
WSU picked up a run to open the scoring in the second.  With one out, Ryan Fucci walked and went to third on a Gabe Snyder hit to right.  After Snyder stole second, John Brodner reached on an infield single to third as Fucci scored.
Brodner drove in another run in the fourth as his single to left plated Snyder, who walked and advanced to second on an Andrew McCafferty sacrifice.  The Raiders then went up 3-0 in the fifth as Mark Fowler doubled to right center, went to third on a Michael Timm grounder and scored on a Sean Murphy ground out to short.
That lead, though, disappeared as the Penguins sent 10 batters to the plate in tallying six runs in the bottom of the sixth, taking advantage of six hits and a pair of WSU errors.
Wright State posed a threat in the ninth, loading the bases on a Snyder walk and singles by McCafferty and Mitch Roman, but a double play ended the game.
Offensively, Brodner led the way for the Raiders with two hits and two RBI while on the mound, Andrew Elliott pitched two scoreless inning in relief, striking out four.
Wright State (30-12, 14-6 Horizon) hosts UIC in a key Horizon League series next weekend at Nischwitz Stadium, with the opener set for Friday night at 6:30.

ROCKIES-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Reds lost their ninth straight game Monday as Nolan Arenado homered, had three hits and drove in the tiebreaking run with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman that gave the Colorado Rockies a 5-4 victory.

This is the Reds' longest losing streak since they dropped 11 straight in June 1998 under manager Jack McKeon.

Arenado had a pair of singles and a solo homer off Reds starter Jason Marquis. He then helped the Rockies pull it out against Chapman (2-3), who came in for the ninth.

Charlie Blackmon opened with a walk and took third on D.J. Lemahieu's single. Blackmon scored easily on Arenado's fly to center fielder Billy Hamilton, whose throw was off-target.

Rafael Betancourt (2-1) retired the four batters he faced. John Axford gave up a walk in the ninth while getting his seventh save in as many chances.

RANGERS-INDIANS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Josh Hamilton was hitless in his return to the majors, but reached on a key error that sent the Texas Rangers over Cleveland 10-8 Monday for their sixth straight win.

Hamilton, slowed this season by shoulder surgery, was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk, and scored a run.

The 2010 AL MVP came up with runners on first and second and two outs in the seventh inning with the score 8-all. He hit an easy tapper back to pitcher Zach McAllister, whose throw was well over the head of first baseman Carlos Santana for a two-base error.

Hamilton was traded from the Angels back to Texas in late April.

Prince Fielder hit his fourth home run in four games for the Rangers. He hit an RBI single that tied it earlier in the seventh.

The Indians had won six in a row.
