Sito pitches CSU to another win

Elyria’s Tess Sito threw a complete game six-hitter as the Vikings defeated UIC, 6-1, on Saturday afternoon.

Sito, who improved to 2-0, scattered six hits in seven innings, and also struck out four and walked two.

"Tess really did a nice job this weekend in the circle," CSU head coach Angie Nicholson said. "She had been having some elbow pain for most of the preseason and is finally healthy enough to pitch at the level that she is capable of. All we have to do is get her strength and endurance back up and we will have the best one-two pitching combo in the league."

Besides her work in the circle, Sito went 2-for-2 at the plate, driving in her team-leading 26th run. She also stole two bases to give her 23 on the season, moving her into 8th place on the CSU single season list.

Elyria's Megan Bashak, who has been slow to come back offensively since breaking her wrist last season, went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs to complete a three-hit, .429 batting average for the weekend.

Cleveland State improved to 21-8 overall and 2-1 in league play while UIC slips to 8-24 overall and 1-2 in the Horizon League.
