Wright State ousts Ohio with 8-3 win

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Mark Fowler hit a home run and had three RBIs to lead Wright State past Ohio 8-3 on Sunday, eliminating the Bobcats from the NCAA regionals.

Play was suspended in the top of the third inning because of rain on Saturday.

Wright State (42-16) got eight innings over two days from starter Jesse Scholtens (7-4), who threw 116 pitches and allowed eight hits for the win.

It was the first postseason win for Wright State since 1994. Ryan Fucci went 2 for 4 with three RBIs for the Raiders. Fowler was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.

Ohio (36-21), which lost to top-seeded Illinois on Friday, was led by Jake Madsen who went 2 for 4 with a RBI.

Ohio starter Jake Rudnicki (3-5) took the loss. He allowed five runs in the second inning on Saturday.
