KSU rally falls short
Kent State scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh, but it was not enough as the Golden Flashes lost 7-5 to visiting Wright State.
Behind 6-1 entering the seventh, Justin Kirby drove in a run on an error before Cam Touchette tripled him home alongside Ben Carew.
Kian O'Brien followed with a fielder's choice to second that scored Touchette and made it 6-5, but KSU (27-22) could not push across another run.
KSU eighth at regional
The Golden Flashes shot a 2-under-par 278 on the second day of the NCAA Pullman regional Tuesday afternoon to move up two spots on the leaderboard to a tie for eighth.
KSU has a two-day total of 554, good enough for 6 under par at the par-70 Palouse Ridge Golf Club in Pullman, Wash.
The low man for KSU is Chris Doody, carding a 134. Also under par is Bjarki Petursson with a 139.
