Wright State Baseball completed the sweep over instate rival Youngstown State this past weekend, and improved their conference record to 11-4 on the year with a 10-2 record at home. Gabe Snyder became the all time leader in WSU history in RBI’s in game one of the series.

In game one, Gabe Snyder hit two homeruns to bring his season total to 12, just five away from breaking the single season record of 16 at WSU. Snyder would finish the game with six RBI’s to lead the team to an 18-4 drumming of the Penguins. Ryan Weiss tossed seven innings of two run ball to secure the win.

Game two saw a completely different game between the two teams. Unlike the first game, game two played out to be more of a pitcher’s duel. WSU pitchers combined to strike out 12 Penguins in the game, and Zane Harris drove in two runs for the Raiders to give WSU a close 3-2 victory and a chance at the series sweep.

Game three reverted back to the offensive side of baseball with both teams scoring in double digits. Chase Sloan hit his first career homerun as a Raider and drove in three RBI’s. Four other Raiders drove in two runs to give WSU a 15-10 win and a series sweep.
