In a rare nonconference matchup between Big South teams, USC Upstate used defensive miscues to get past Charleston Southern 11-7 Tuesday night at Cleveland S. Harley Ballpark.
USC Upstate (12-16) got out to an early 5-2 lead through three innings turning four CSU (10-22) errors into runs before a four-spot in the top of the fifth brought the game back to a 7-6 margin in favor of the Spartans.
Facing a 7-2 deficit, Kyle Horton smacked a two-run double down the left field line then scored on Max Ryerson’s two-run home run to left capping the four-run inning and making it a one-run affair. The Spartans would answer though with two in the bottom of the fifth before adding insurance and hanging on for the 11-7 final.
Ryerson’s home run highlighted a two-hit day for the freshman while Jason Miller extended his hit streak to 11 games and gathered two knocks while Reid Hardwick also hit two singles.
CSU finishes their 2019 series with Lowcountry rival Citadel Wednesday night on ESPN+ as the Bucs try and make it a perfect 3-0 at home versus Charleston-based schools this season. First pitch from CSU Ballpark is slated for 6 p.m.
