CHARLESTON, S .C. – Charleston Southern puts a four-game winning streak on the line on Tuesday afternoon at CSU Ballpark when the Bucs host Savannah State. The teams will resume a protested game from April 2 beginning at 2 p.m., then play a full nine-inning game immediately following.
The Bucs' 4-3 loss at Savannah State was protested by CSU head coach Stuart Lake in the bottom of the sixth inning following an incorrect ruling on a line drive to CSU third baseman Alex Tomasovich. The Tigers went on to score the eventual game-winning run in the inning.
The game will be replayed from the bottom of the sixth inning with runners on first and second for SSU and the Bucs trailing, 3-2.
CSU's record is officially 21-19 entering Tuesday's continued game.
Sophomore Andrew Tomasovich (3-2) will take the ball tomorrow afternoon for the Bucs. He missed his weekend start against UNC Asheville due to rain on Saturday, but is coming off a strong outing against Gardner-Webb 10 days ago as the Bucs won the rubber game to take the Big South series.
CSU will take a full week off beginning Wednesday for final exams. The Bucs do not play again until April 30 at Wofford, then traveling to Presbyterian for a Big South series on May 2.
Buccaneers' third baseman Alex Tomasovich and reliever Denis Buckley were named the Big South Player and Pitcher of the Week on Monday by the conference office.
Tomasovich needs one double to tie the CSU career mark for doubles at 50 and is 20 hits shy of the CSU career hits record, held by Nick Chinners (255 hits, 2008-2011).
CSU closer Austin Weekley has tied his own school record with eight saves in a season and needs one to set a new CSU mark. He is two shy of Payton Tweddale's career mark of 18 saves.
