Joseph Mershon and Tanner McCallister each launched a grand slam, and Ty Good fanned seven as the College of Charleston baseball team clinched an opening series victory with a 14-2 win in game one. The Cougars then fell short of a series sweep with a 4-3 setback to North Carolina A&T in the finale on Sunday afternoon at Patriots Point.

The Cougars’ bats exploded for 14 runs in game one, including the fourth multi-grand slam game in program history and the first since March 24, 2010 at Charleston Southern. Mershon went 4-for-7 in the doubleheader to lead the offense while eight Cougars drove in at least one run. The Aggies edged the Cougars, 4-3, in a back-and-forth battle in game two thanks to an eighth inning homer from Justin Rodriguez.

Mershon and McCallister each accomplished a career first in epic fashion in game one as both marked their first collegiate home run with a grand slam to propel the Cougars to a14-2 win. Mershon added a 3-for-4 effort in game two while McCallister went 2-for-4 with his grand slam in game one.
