Joseph Mershon clubbed three homers and drove in six runs to spark the offense and Jordan Carr tossed three and two-thirds shutout innings in relief as College of Charleston split a doubleheader with Tennessee Tech on Saturday afternoon at Patriots Point.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Mershon set the tone for the offense in game one, leading off the first with a homer before launching a three-run shot in the second as part of a 4-for-4 day with a total of five RBI. The Cougars would take a 6-1 lead into the sixth before Tennessee Tech plated five in the top half to even the score at 6-6. Mershon broke the tie with an RBI double in the home half and Harrison Hawkins drove in two with a double in the eighth to provide some insurance en route to a 9-6 victory. Tennessee Tech rallied from a 3-0 deficit in game two with two runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the eighth to snatch a doubleheader split.

Mershon stole the show at the plate with three homers as part of a 6-for-8 day. The second-year freshman reached base five times and finished a triple shy of the cycle in the opener with two home runs, a double, five RBI and four runs scored. He followed that with a 2-for-4 effort in game two that included a solo homer in the third. Mershon accounted for six of the Cougars’ 11 RBI in the doubleheader.
