East Cleveland, Ohio - Cleveland State received a strong performance from starting pitcher Nathan Schaefer, but the Viking offense was unable to provide much support, as CSU fell to Wright State, 4-1, at Forest Hill Park on Sunday (May 14).
Schaefer worked a gutsy 6 2/3 innings, scattering eight hits and regaining his command after a some early-game wildness to hold the Raiders to three one-run innings.
The CSU bats, however, were held to just one run on four hits despite some genuine run-scoring opportunities throughout the contest.
The Vikings put runners on second and third with one down after Dylan Henry drew a one-out walk before moving up two bases on a Bobby Cash double, but WSU starter Chris Snyder earned a strikeout and a ground out to end the inning.
CSU threatened again in the fifth, loading the bases on a single and a pair of two-out walks before Rich Ranells worked a free pass to plate Vasili Pahoulis from third, but the Vikings would get no more.
Steve Chinn finished the game with a single and a walk, reaching base for the 44th time in 47 games.
The Vikings welcome Ohio to Forest Hill Park on Tuesday (May 16) for a 3:00 p.m. non-conference game.
