Wright State is looking to cap off a successful season with a Horizon League Tournament title in Chicago this week.

The Horizon League Baseball Tournament gets underway this week in Chicago and the Wright State Raiders are the No. 2 seed heading into action at Les Miller Field. While Dayton is typically known for its great college basketball, this week it will be a college baseball town with both the Raiders and Dayton Flyers holding the No. 2 seed in their respective conference tournaments.

Wright State finished the season 20-10 in the conference and had eight players named to the All-Horizon League teams, including Tristan Moore, who was named Player of the Year. The successful season landed them the No. 2 seed, with Valparaiso holding the top spot. The Raiders will have a first-round bye on Wednesday, awaiting the winner of Milwaukee and Youngstown State. It's a double elimination tournament with the title game set for Saturday afternoon in Chicago.

The complete schedule for the first two days below:

Wednesday, May 23rd

No. 4 UIC vs. No. 5 Butler - Noon ET
