A pair of freshmen provided the power on Senior Day at the WSU Softball Field Sunday as Angie Clark and Jess Gorman each homered to lead the Raiders past Green Bay 5-1.
Wright State opened the scoring with two in the second. Kortney Tackett led off with a double to left center and after advancing to third on a Gorman bunt, Kate Kine's ground ball to second plate Tackett with the first run. The Raiders weren't finished, however, as Clark followed by driving a 2-0 pitch over the fence in center for her first collegiate home run.
Green Bay (21-23, 10-11 Horizon) cut the deficit in half with an unearned run in the third, but WSU answered with two more in the bottom of the inning. Three singles by China Frost, Michelle Baker and Tackett looked to produce a run, but Frost was thrown out at the plate as Baker and Tackett moved into scoring position. A wild pitch, though, did result in a run and Gorman singled in Tackett to make it 4-1.
Gorman rounded out the scoring in the sixth as she went the other way for a solo home run to left center, her second of the season.
Krystian DeWitt (14-25) allowed just four hits and a walk in picking up the complete-game win, striking out seven. Frost, Tackett and Gorman each had two hits to lead the Raider offense, with Gorman driving in two and Tackett scoring twice.
Wright State (21-29, 9-12 Horizon) wraps up the home portion of its schedule on Wednesday, May 2, with a 5:00 doubleheader against Ohio.
