By CSU Sports Information
CHARLESTON, S.C. – With two outs in the top of the seventh inning, lightning strikes and heavy rains forced Tuesday’s CSU baseball game against the College of Charleston to be suspended. The teams will continue the contest on April 16 at 1 p.m. before their regularly scheduled game that day. The Cougars were leading 4-0 when play was suspended.
The College of Charleston took an early 2-0 lead, capitalizing on three consecutive free passes by CSU starting pitcher T.J. Green. After opening the game with a strikeout, Green issued two walks and hit a batter before a sacrifice fly by Michael Kohn scored Gabe Marchant to put the Cougars in front. Charleston added to its lead when Brandon Sizemore’s double brought Jeremie Tice home.
Michael Harrington gave the Cougars a three-run advantage in the top of the fourth inning, hitting a sacrifice fly that brought Mike Hentz home from third. Joe Bergman gave Charleston a 4-0 lead in the top of the seventh before play was suspended, hitting a single to score Marchant.
CSU is scheduled to be on the road tomorrow with a 2 p.m. showdown with Savannah State on the slate.
