BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Saturday presented a new chance and Charleston Southern took that literally.
The Buccaneers (17-29, 7-13 Big South) came out swinging early jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning and leading the whole way to a 9-3 series-tying win over Campbell (26-16, 14-5 Big South).
Five Charleston Southern hitters collected at least two hits on the day with seniors Jason Miller and Josh Litchfield turning in three-hit performances whole scoring a combined three runs and driving in three more.
CSU got the offense going early with Miller’s RBI single and Max Ryerson’s RBI fielder’s choice for a 2-0 lead. Campbell would scratch across a run in the fourth on a bases-loaded walk, but CSU starter Cam Weinberger wiggled out with justone run allowed thanks to a line drive caught at third and pop fly to second.
The Bucs took that momentum back to the plate to score seven of the final nine runs of the day posting two runs in the fifth, three in the sixth and two-more for insurance in the eighth.
Freshman righty RJ Petit continued to mow-down hitters retiring 14 of the 16 batters he faced Saturday tossing the final 4.2 frames to earn the win and move his scoreless inning streak to 21-straight and force a rubber game Sunday.
Charleston Southern and Campbell conclude the series Sunday at 1 p.m. from Jim Perry Stadium with the Bucs seeking a huge series win at the Big South preseason favorite.
