Gardner-Webb evens series with late surge Saturday night

Cody Maw and Landon Mitchell matched zeros throughout most of the night, but a six-run eighth inning broke open a 2-1 ballgame to give Gardner-Webb an 8-3 win Saturday night in Big South baseball action from CSU Ballpark.

Charleston Southern (13-25, 3-11 Big South) got on the board first behind Sam Trend-Beacom’s RBI single in the second inning, but a two-run third and six-run eight were enough to push the Runnin’ Bulldogs (16-15, 7-7 Big South) to a win and even the series.

Gardner-Webb got a solo blast from JP McGuire in the second to get on the board, then extended their stronghold in the eighth with two-run shots from Corey Howard and Jake Phillips.

Both Maw and Mitchell worked around runs in the second and third frames as both left in a 2-1 ballgame, but key outs in run-scoring situations kept both offense off the board until late.
