Caleb Sampen allowed two runs on seven hits through five innings to pick up the win, and Derek Hendrixson earned a four-inning save to give the Raiders (2-4) another victory against a nationally ranked team.

WSU took two of three from No. 10 Clemson in last year’s season-opening series and won a game against No. 4 South Carolina the following week.

In addition to Sunday's win, the Raiders beat the Rajun Cajuns 8-2 in Friday's opener.

Wright State will remain on the road through the school’s spring break, facing Sam Houston State for two games Tuesday and Wednesday before play a three-game weekend set at Texas-Arlington.
