Trotter Harlan collected seven hits, the pitching staff held William & Mary to a total of five runs and the defense was on full display as the College of Charleston swept both games of a doubleheader on Saturday to bounce back and win its opening series in Colonial Athletic Association play.
The Cougars put together a complete effort in game one of the doubleheader, pushing across seven runs and holding William & Mary to one run on seven hits to even the series at one game apiece. Harrison Hawkins provided the key hit with a two-out, three-run homer in the fifth. Charleston’s pitching staff, defense and timely hitting stole the show in game two as the Cougars rallied from a 4-2 deficit to sweep the doubleheader and take the series two games to one.
Second-year freshman Trotter Harlan opened the doubleheader with a stellar performance at the dish going 4-for-5 with a double to mark his first collegiate four-hit game. The Fountain Inn, S.C. native followed with a three-hit effort out of the leadoff spot in game two to provide the spark for the offense.
The Cougars return to the diamond on Tuesday when they host Jacksonville in midweek action. First pitch is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. at Patriots Point.
