Late home run spoils Buccaneer sweep Tuesday night

By: CSU Sports Media

Freshman righty Logan Adams tossed a career-high 5.0 innings and Ryan Stoudemire homered on a three-hit night, but a late go-ahead home run from Jason Swan pushed Georgia Southern to a 7-4 win Tuesday for the season split.

Stoudemire’s eighth home run headlined a three-run fifth inning as CSU (14-26) took their first lead of the night, but Georgia Southern (21-16) struck back with two in the bottom half then regained the lead for good on Swan’s three-runhome run in the seventh.

The three-run blast from Stoudemire opened the scoring after CSU freshman Logan Adams had shut down the Eagle offense through four frames and Rhett Gay kept the Bucs out of the hit column until the fourth. Stoudemire also collected threehits on the night while junior outfielder Dante Blakeney worked two walks to extend his on-base streak to 12 games.
