Wichita State Shockers

Shockers leave bases loaded in ninth, lose 6-4 at Oral Roberts

Wichita State left the bases loaded in the ninth inning for the second straight loss, falling to Oral Roberts 6-4 on Wednesday in Tulsa.

WSU left the bases loaded against Northern Colorado in a 3-2 loss Sunday.

The Shockers (2-2) were limited to three hits Wednesday but drew 11 walks. Down 6-3 going into the ninth, freshman Josh DeBacker opened the inning with a walk. Travis Young was hit by a pitch, then Mikel Mucha and Ryan Tinkham each drew walks, driving in DeBacker to make it 6-4 with the bases load and no outs. But Alec Bohn popped up and Gunnar Troutwine took a called third strike, then pinch-hitter Greyson Jenista hit a shot to center that was caught to end the game.

Trailing 6-1 going to the fifth, WSU scored twice but again left the bases loaded. Young reached on an error and later scored on a wild pitch. Tinkham drew a walk and later scored on a passed ball. Three other walks loaded the bases, but Tanner Kirk hit into a fielder’s choice to end the inning.

Notes: Both starting pitchers, Tyler Gibson of WSU and Logan Michaels of ORU, pitched at Seminole (Okla.) State last season.…ORU leadoff hitter Nick Rotola played at Wichita’s Life Prep. He had three hits and a walk.… The Shockers will travel to New Mexico for a three-game series Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
