Cincinnati beats WSU in Friday’s series opener

Cincinnati struck for five runs in the fourth, four of which were unearned, and cruised by Wichita State 8-2 Friday at Eck Stadium.

The Bearcats (23-20, 9-7) had three hits in the fourth and were helped by an error by Travis Young in center field, two walks and a hit-by-pitch.

Young averted WSU’s second shutout of the season by leading off the eighth with his first homer of the season. Alec Bohm drove in Luke Rutter, who had been hit by a pitch, with a single for the second run of the eighth for WSU (28-15, 5-11).

Ritter hit safely in his 18th straight game. He singled in the first and sixth. During his streak, he is hitting .431 (31 of 72).
