CHARLESTON, S.C. – Anyone who came to Buccaneer Field looking for a repeat of Tuesday’s 15-hit performance couldn’t have been too disappointed with the final outcome. Charleston Southern manufactured six runs on seven hits and never allowed Delaware State more than one hit per inning to shut out the Hornets, 6-0, in college baseball action on Friday. Charleston Southern moves to 2-0 for the first time since 2001; Delaware State loses its season opener.
Charleston Southern’s Mark Perry and Justin Fyle each hit a two-RBI double in the sixth to break open a 1-0 game. Shortstop Adam Brown drove in the first run in the second with a DSU error. The Buccaneers added their final run in the seventh, as Will Rodriguez was hit by Ryan VanDreiessche’s 0-2 pitch with bases loaded.
Brandon Roberts earned the win for CSU with a six-inning, four-hit, six-strikeout performance. Andrew White recorded the save, striking out three and allowing two hits in three innings. Delaware State’s Dan Perkins took the hard-luck loss, pitching effectively for five innings but giving up two hits and four walks that resulted in two earned runs.
Saturday will mark day two of the three-game series with the first pitch scheduled at 1 p.m.Related Item: Box Score
