College of Charleston blasted three home runs, Ari Sechopoulos drove in a career-high six runs and Ty Good struck out 10 as the Cougars defeated James Madison, 14-7, in Friday night’s weekend series opener at Patriots Point.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Cougars jumped out to an early lead with a five-run first inning highlighted by Sechopoulos’ grand slam to right center. A two-run shot from Trotter Harlan in the second and an RBI single from Sechopoulos would push the lead to 8-0 before Brody Hopkins gave the Cougars a 10-run advantage with a two-run homer of his own in the third. Charleston held a 12-0 lead before James Madison got on the board with a two-run long ball in the sixth, which the Cougars answered with two in the home half. The Dukes would plated three in the seventh and two in the ninth to cap the scoring.
Sechopoulos finished a triple shy of the cycle with a grand slam, RBI single and run-scoring double. He finished the night 3-for-4 with two runs scored, a walk and a career-high six RBI.
The Cougars and Dukes will meet in game two of the series tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is scheduled for 2 pm at Patriots Point.
