WICHITA, Kan. -- Wichita State hung three consecutive crooked numbers on the board in the middle innings and got shutout relief from freshmen Tyler Dobbs and Brady Hamilton to ease past Gonzaga 10-5 on Saturday afternoon at Eck Stadium.

The win clinches the series victory for Wichita State (12-6), which has now won all four of their weekend series in 2024.

The Shockers overcame 12 walks and 3 hit by pitches from the pitching staff with the help of a season high four double plays and an offensive barrage in innings 3-through-5. Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom of the third, Wichita State struck for their first multi-run inning courtesy of RBI singles from Camden Johnson and Jordan Rogers for a 2-1 lead.

Gonzaga's Jace Phelan responded with a two-run single of his own in the top of the fourth to re-take the lead for Gonzaga at 3-2, but the advantage proved to be short lived. WSU had three runs on the board after just four pitches in the home half of the inning; Dayvin Johnson led off with a double, Mauricio Millan was hit by a pitch, Ryan Callahan bunted them both over, and Seth Stroh smashed a 448-foot bomb to right for a three-run homer and a 5-3 lead.

The Bulldogs (3-14) pulled even in the fifth when Tyler Griggs lashed an RBI triple and scored on a ground out to tie the game at 5-5. But the Shockers hung five more runs on the board in the bottom of the frame to pull away for good. Dayvin Johnson rifled a three-run double to get the party started, coming around to score a batter later via a Millan RBI single. Kam Durnin made it 10-5 with a sacrifice fly later in the inning to plate Millan.

Dobbs and Hamilton hung zeroes on the board the rest of the way to preserve the lead, combining for 4.1 innings of hitless, scoreless relief. Dobbs (4-1) earned the victory by getting the final out of the fifth and then pitching through the seventh, while Hamilton closed out the win with two shutout frames including a 1-2-3 ninth.

Eight of the nine Shockers in the lineup had at least one hit, while Stroh and Dayvin Johnson each drove in three runs.

Kai Francis (0-1) took the loss for Gonzaga, allowing three runs without recording an out in the five-run fifth.

The Shockers and Bulldogs conclude the series on Sunday afternoon. First pitch from Eck Stadium is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
