How it Happened
Charleston (5-1) took advantage of a costly third-inning error, scoring its lone run of the game with one out in the third on a misplayed ground ball. Rhode Island (1-5) had placed runners on second and third with one out in the top of the inning, but back-to-back strikeouts ended the threat. The Rams would have runners in scoring position twice more, but were unable to push any across.

Inside the Box Score

  • Sophomore Nick DeRegis recorded two of Rhody's hits on the afternoon - his first and second of the season. He was the only Ram to finish with multiple hits.
  • Senior Pat Quinn also reached base twice, going 1-for-2 with a walk.
  • Overall, Rhody stranded eight runners on the night.
  • Sophomore Steve Moyers was charged with the loss, despite allowing just one run on four hits over a six-inning start. 
  • Sophomore Brad Applin and senior Nick Narodowy each tossed a scoreless inning of relief.
  • Charleston's Taylor Clarke tossed five shutout innings to pick up the win while Hayden McCutcheon earned his second save of the season.
