Ohio State’s baseball team jumped out to an early lead and hung on to beat Western Michigan, 4-3, behind a strong outing from starter Drew Rucinski and a solid day at the plate from Matt Streng on Friday afternoon at Charlotte Sports Park in Port Charlotte, Florida.

Rucinski picked up his first win of the season, going seven innings, giving up two earned runs on six hits while striking out three. Streng went 3-for-4 at the plate.

OSU wasted no time in getting to Broncos starting pitcher Brian Stroud. Tim Wetzel walked to lead off the games and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Tyler Engle. After a groundout by Brad Hallberg, Brian DeLucia singled to right to drive in Wetzel. DeLucia then went to third on a single by Streng and scored on a perfectly-placed and executed double steal to put the Bucks up 2-0 after the first inning.

OSU extended the lead to 4-0 in the second inning. Ryan Cypret singled to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Joe Ciamacco before Greg Solomon drilled a 1-0 pitch to the wall in center for an RBI triple. Wetzel came to the plate and scorched a ground ball up the middle. WMU shortstop Patrick Duncan was playing in and made a diving stop but his throw home was too late to get Solomon as the Buckeyes scored another run.
