Charleston Southern staged a late comeback effort in both games Saturday, but Longwood escaped with a pair of one-run wins 3-2 and 7-6 from Buddy Bolding Stadium.

In game one, Longwood (9-21, 4-8 Big South) struck first in the third inning before CSU (11-24, 1-10 Big South) answered with a two-spot in the fourth but couldn’t muster anything else the rest of the way. Game two saw the Bucs strike first in the opening frame but a four-run second swung momentum back into the Lancer dugout.

CSU had another three-run response in the fourth to tie it 4-4, but Longwood had one more big inning scoring three and taking a 7-4 lead before holding on in the ninth.

Jason Miller collected five hits to lead the CSU offense across two games and extend his streak to 14-striaght, but CSU couldn’t drive in key runs down the stretch to overcome the early holes.

Game 1 – Longwood 3, CSU 2

How They Scored

· Longwood scored first in third inning behind two hits and a walk for a 1-0 margin, but CSU came right back with two in the fourth for a 2-1 lead.

· In the two-run fourth, CSU scored their first run on Ryan Stoudemire’s RBI double then a passed ball for the 2-1 margin. The inning was set up by Jason Miller’s leadoff double – his second of the week before Stoudemire drove him in.

· Longwood got two back in the seventh to retake the lead at 3-2 where it would stand.

Game 2 – Longwood 7, CSU 6

How They Scored

· CSU struck first with an unearned run to open the ballgame and take a 1-0 lead off Longwood starter Andrew Melnyk.

· After a perfect first inning, the Longwood bats erupted for four runs in the second to take the 4-1 lead and leaving the bases loaded.

· The Bucs had a big frame of their own up their sleeve scoring three times in the fourth on just one hit – Miller’s leadoff single.

· A pair of bases-loaded walks made it 4-4 in the top half, but another Lancer rally in the bottom half gave them the lead once again as they held on down the stretch.

· CSU tried one final time with two runs in the ninth, but left the tying run at second.
