FULLERTON, Ca.-Ohio pitcher/designated hitter Emily Wethington broke the school's career home run record Saturday as the Bobcats picked up a 6-0 win over Canisius and suffered a 2-1 loss to host Cal State Fullerton.  

The Bobcats are now 11-13 on the season.

Wethington's three-run shot against Canisius gave her 23 for her career, surpassing Erin Chapman, who hit 22 from 2001-04.

She had three hits on the day, as did third baseman Sara Clark. Left fielder Paige Kemezis posted a pair of hits and pitcher/right fielder Melissa Bonner scored twice.

Against Canisius, Wethington's homer came in the third inning, while catcher Jordan Paden and first baseman Raven King made it 5-0 on a single up the middle and solo homer to left, respectively, in the fifth inning.

Pinch hitter Alexandria Bazquez tacked on an extra run with a single to center in the sixth.

Bonner (2-2) picked up the win, allowing just two hits with one strikeout in four innings of work. Canisius' Jen Consaul (1-2) suffered the loss, yielding five earned runs on nine hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Ohio went on top 1-0 in the fifth inning of the Fullerton game with a Kemezis double to right center, which scored center fielder Jillian Van Wagnen.

That lead held until the sixth when Fullerton scored twice on third baseman Nicole Johnson's triple to right center.
