Honnah Susor tied the game with a triple in the fifth and won it with a triple in the eighth as the Wright State softball team rallied for a 2-1 victory Wednesday against Detroit in the first round of the Horizon League tournament.

Susor, who on Tuesday was named first team All-HL for the second year in a row, led off the bottom of the eighth by rounding the bases on a triple and error for the walk-off win.

The victory sends the fourth-seeded Raiders (21-29) into a second-round game against No. 1 Illinois-Chicago at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Ally Russell (6-7) pitched three innings of scoreless relief to earn the win after starter Ashley Sharp limited Detroit to one unearned run on three hits through the first five innings.

The Titans scored their lone run in the second, but Susor’s two-out triple in the bottom of the fifth plated pinch-runner Karalyn Rhodeback with the tying run.

WSU went 2-1 in the regular season against top-seed and tournament host UIC, which is led by former Raiders coach Lynn Curylo.

Fifth-seeded Detroit (15-33) will play an elimination game later today against the loser of the contest between No. 3 seed Valparaiso and No. 6 Oakland.
