    Box Score

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Drew Anderson was a perfect 4-for-4 with two doubles while Steve Caravati was 3-for-5 to power Ohio State past Wright State 13-4 Wednesday night in non-conference action at Bill Davis Stadium. The Buckeyes, which won four consecutive games for the first time this season, jumped out to an earl 9-3 lead in the first four innings and finished with 18 hits in error-free baseball by each team.

    Anderson, a junior from Brownsburg, Ind. (Brownsburg), provided three doubles and a single and added a sacrifice fly in the second inning for his lone RBI. Caravati, a junior from Dover, Ohio (Dover) doubled in the second, singled in the third and provided a two-run home run in the fourth, but missed a triple for the cycle in his final two at bats. Caravati is the last Buckeye to hit for the cycle, doing so in 2001.


    Wright State put up a three spot in the first inning thanks to a bases-clearing double to right-centerfield by Matt Barhorst. OSU starter Jeffrey Carroll (Fr., Columbus, Ohio/Bishop Watterson) walked the first two batters of the game on eight straight pitches before Bryan Vickers loaded the bases with a single through the left side. A ground ball to third by Ross Vagedes was picked up and thrown home for the force out before the Barhorst three-run double.

    In the bottom of the inning, Jedidiah Stephen (So., Caldwell, Ohio/Shenandoah) singled to score two runs and pull the Buckeyes within a 3-2 score. Anderson led off the inning with a double and then Caravati doubled to put runners at the corners. Stephen singled through the left side to score both Anderson and Caravati.

    Two more runs came across the plate for Ohio State in the second inning as Jacob Howell (Fr., Ashland, Ohio/Ashland) scored on a sacrifice fly by Anderson. Mike Rabin (Jr., West Chester, Ohio/Lakota East) singled through the left side to score Kris Moorman (Fr., St. Henry, Ohio/St. Henry), who doubled to right-center field for his second career hit.

    Adam Schneider (Fr., Agoura Hills, Calif./Agoura) launched a three-run home run in the third to give Ohio State a 7-3 lead. The shot cleared the fence in left field to score Caravati and Stephen, who both boarded with singles.

    Caravati moved into a team tie with his sixth home run of the season, going off the top of the wall in straight-away center field to score Rabin, who reached on a fielder's choice, to make the score 9-3 in the bottom of the fourth. The team's 10th run was set up on a two-out double by Anderson in the sixth. Rabin knocked him in with a single through the left side.

    Wright State snapped a five-inning scoreless streak win a single run in the top of the seventh inning. Ross Oeder led off the inning with a single, moved to second on a wild pitch and to third on a single by Justin Wilson. Vickers walked to load the bases before a single through the left side by Vagedes plated Oeder to pull the Raiders within a 10-4 disadvantage. However, that score would not last long.

    Ohio State scored three more runs in the bottom of the inning to extend its lead to 13-4. Ronnie Bourquin (Fr., Canton, Ohio/Canton South) led off the inning with a pinch-hit double. Jason Zoeller (Fr., Verona, Pa./Shady Side Academy) walked before getting caught at second on a fielder's choice by Derek Kinnear (Sr., Kenton, Ohio/Kenton). Howell singled in Bourquin before Cody Caughenbaugh (So., Newark, Ohio/Licking Valley) singled through the right side to score both Kinnear and Howell to take a nine-run lead.

    Rabin, Stephen and Howell each had two hits in the offensive attack. Ohio State now has 55 hits in its last three games and has outscored opponents 44-16 in those three games. The Buckeyes scored 31 runs on 37 hits in the final two games at Michigan State.

    Carroll picked up his first win as a Buckeye in the scheduled abbreviated start. He went 3.0 innings, allowing the three runs in the first inning on three hits. He struck out a career-high five batters against three walks. Jesse Paciorek (Jr., Lakewood, Ohio/Lakewood), Justin Myers (So., Scottown, Ohio/Symmes Valley), Trey Fausnaugh (Fr., Circleville, Ohio/Westfall) and Brett Hatcher (Jr., Bellefontaine, Ohio/Bellefontaine) allowed just one run the rest of the way on six hits. First-place Ohio State (18-14 overall, 8-4 Big Ten) returns to conference action this weekend and welcomes second-place Michigan (19-15, 7-5) in a four-game Big Ten series at Bill Davis Stadium. The teams will open the set Friday with a single game at 6:35 p.m. and then play a doubleheader Saturday at 4:05 p.m. The series concludes Sunday with a single game at 1:05 p.m. All games will be broadcast on NPR 820 (WOSU-AM).
