The Wright State softball team found the offense hard to come by Wednesday as the Raiders saw their seven-game winning streak end in dropping a pair of 4-0 decisions at Ohio State.

In the opener, the Raiders threatened early as Jess Gorman reached on an error and Alex Machen came up with what turned out to be the only hit of the game, a single through the right side of the infield, to put runners on first and third.  The threat, however, came up empty as Kaitlyn Kite flew out to right and Gorman was thrown out at the plate for a double play.

WSU did not have another base runner until Angie Clark walked and Hanna Floyd was hit by a pitch in the sixth, but both were left stranded.

Game two started much the same way as game one as Wright State had two runners in scoring position as Gorman singled, went to third as Floyd reached on an error and later stole second, but again the Raiders came away without a run as the next three batters were retired.

WSU later had a runner on second in the second and two runners on in the sixth, but could not break through.

Gorman had two hits in the nightcap for Wright State (16-33), who wraps up the regular season this weekend with a three-game series at Horizon League co-leader Loyola.  The Raiders and Ramblers will play a doubleheader on Saturday at 1:00 Eastern followed by a single game on Sunday at the same time.
