Sito hits her 13th home run to lead CSU in comeback win

Cleveland State came back from a 7-3 sixth-inning deficit and swept a doubleheader against Wright State, and have now won 17 of its last 18 games, improving to 26-8 overall and moved into first place in the Horizon League with a 7-1 record. The Vikings moved past Valparaiso (6-1), who was idle from league play.

The Viking scored their only runs in the first when Keystone’s Jessica Burt led off with a single and came around to score when Elyria’s Tess Sito blasted her 13th home run of the season to right centerfield. The homer was Sito’s 13th of the year, tying Lia Gordon’s school record set last year. Sito finished the game 2-for-2 in the game, her 17th multiple hit game of the season.

"Tess is having a remarkable year," CSU head coach Angie Nicholson said. "She just went with the pitch and drove it to right center."

Sito allowed just two hits in three innings of work to get the win and improve to 3-0 on the year while Cox was the loser for Wright State, slipping to 3-2.
