CHARLESTON, S.C. - The CSU baseball team will look to end a two-game skid when they travel to Savannah State for a 2 p.m. match up with the Tigers on Tuesday at Tiger Field.
The Bucs vs. The Tigers
CSU will face Savannah State in second game of the home-and-home series. CSU took the first game by a score of 5-3 back on March 1, with Nick Chinners going 3-of-4 with a run and 2 RBI and Brantley Meier going 2-for-5 with two runs. The Bucs lead the Tigers 12-6 all-time, including two wins from the 2010 season. In 2010, Brantley Meier’s 3 hits led CSU past the Tigers by a score of 9-1 in Charleston on March 17. The Bucs then took a 12-6 win on March 23 at Tiger Field, with three different players hitting home runs.
Sustar’s Superb Effort
Sophomore Jaren Sustar continued to make a case for player of the week honors with another superb effort in the team’s opening game against Fordham. Just one game after hitting a grand slam, Sustar had four sac bunts to help lead the Bucs to a 4-3 win over the Rams. His mark tied an NCAA single-game record, the third time a NCAA baseball player has had four sac bunts in a game. For Sustar, three of the four resulted in runs.
Hagaman Steps Up
Making just his fifth appearance of the season, freshman Zach Hagaman is making his presence known. In Saturday’s 11-2 win over Fordham, Hagaman had his first collegiate hit. However, this wasn’t just any hit - it was a two run homer that brought home both himself and Walt Quattlebaum and gave the Bucs a 6-2 lead over the Rams.
Sustar’s Grand Slam
Sophomore Jaren Sustar had not hit a home run in the past 36 games, but his first career homer on March 9 vs. USC Upstate, Sustar hit a grand slam in the second inning.
