Wright State eliminates WMU in Louisville Regional

Wright State scored in all but three innings to oust Western Michigan from the NCAA Louisville Regional in a 10-3 rout on Saturday.

The third-seeded Raiders never trailed and followed a scoreless second inning with eight runs over the next five innings to break a 2-2 tie. Wright State (45-16) had 15 hits against five pitchers while Robby Sexton (7-3) allowed three runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings for the victory.

Wright State will meet the Ohio State-Louisville loser on Sunday. Fourth-seeded Western Michigan ends its first NCAA appearance since 1989 at 22-34.

Mitch Roman, Gabe Snyder and J.D. Orr each knocked in two runs for the Raiders and Sean Murphy had an RBI triple. Logan Blair allowed just one hit over the final 2 1/3 innings.

Connor Smith went 2 for 4 with a run for Western Michigan, which tied the game in the first but managed just one run afterward.
