Every starter in the Charleston Southern baseball lineup collected a hit Wednesday night and Max Ryerson and Dante Blakeney each went deep for a 10-5 victory over The Citadel from CSU Ballpark.
Ryerson and Blakeney went back-to-back in the first inning providing CSU’s (11-22) first four runs answering the early three-spot from the Bulldogs (9-20) and never looked back cruising to the win. The Bucs improved to a perfect 3-0 at CSU Ballpark versus Lowcountry rivals CofC and The Citadel posting at least nine runs in all three victories.
Ryerson’s blast made it three-straight games doing yard while Blakeney’s bomb gave the Bucs their second back-to-back longballs in just three games.
The Citadel scored three runs in the first – only two earned – as they used an early CSU miscue and three hits for a 3-0 lead. The four-spot from CSU was just the beginning offensively as CSU scored two-more in the second, three in the fourth and one final run in the seventh.
Each starter collected a hit in the win as Jason Miller made it 12-straight games with a hit and Payton Holdsworth extended his on-base streak to 10. Blakeney and Ryerson each collected two hits as well as Josh Litchfield.
CSU hits the road once again making their longest trip of the season to Longwood for a pivotal Big South weekend set. Friday’s contest will be the second of four CSU baseball games on ESPN3 this season with first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m. from Buddy Bolding Stadium.
