Wofford's Dylan May was 3-for-5 and Ruedisili hit a solo home run to left in the eighth to lead the Terrier offense.  

CSU's Kevin Hickey was 2-for-4 and was robbed of a third hit with a diving grab in the ninth.  

Cody Smith, Daniel Johnson, Jon Piriz, and Chayce Hubbard all worked perfect innings for he Bucs.
