Wichita State Shockers

WSU baseball tops Cincinnati 9-1, evens weekend series

Wichita State blasted Cincinnati 9-1 on Saturday at Eck Stadium, winning the second game of the weekend series.

The Shockers (29-15, 6-11), who hit into four double plays on Friday, hit into two more on Saturday – and also a triple play. In the fourth, Trey Vickers, with runners on first and second, hit into an around-the-horn triple play.

Alec Bohm and Gunnar Troutwine had three hits each as WSU amassed 15 hits. The first four batters in the Shocker lineup were a combined 9 for 18.

WSU put the game away with a six-run seventh, sending 11 batters to the plate.

The Shockers were adept at batting with runners in scoring position, going a season-high 9 for 13.

Starting pitcher Tyler Davis went six innings, allowing an unearned run. He fanned five as did reliever Cody Tyler, who went the final three innings and earned a save. They combined to strike out 10 and did not walk a batter.

Luke Ritter extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a pair of hits. He is batting .429 (33 of 77) during that span.

Cincinnati beat the Shockers 8-2 on Friday in the series opener. The weekend concludes with a game at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.
