Harrison Hawkins drove in six runs with two home runs, including a grand slam, and Ari Sechopoulos added a two-run shot of his own to lead the College of Charleston to an 11-8 win over UNCW on Saturday afternoon in Colonial Athletic Association play at Patriots Point.
The Seahawks opened the scoring with a run in the top of the first. Sechopoulos answered for Charleston in the home half, sending the first pitch he saw to dead center for a two-run homer to give the Cougars a 2-1 lead with his third big fly of the week. Hawkins tattooed a 0-1 pitch to left for a two-run bomb in the fifth to put the Cougars ahead, 5-1.
After UNCW countered with a three-run sixth, Charleston responded with a six-run home half marked by a Hawkins grand slam to take an 11-4 lead. The Seahawks would trim the margin to 11-8 with a pair of two-run shots in the seventh before the Cougars’ bullpen shut the door.
The Cougars and Seahawks will meet in the rubber game of the weekend CAA series tomorrow afternoon. First pitch is slated for 1:00 p.m. at Patriots Point.
