Bucs drop slugfest to Spartans Tuesday night

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.
