Pinch-runner Brody Hopkins scampered home on a ground ball to third to score the winning run as College of Charleston walked off with a 10-9 win in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday afternoon to clinch a series victory against UNCW in Colonial Athletic Association play.

The Seahawks jumped out to a 5-0 lead with a five-run second inning capped off by a three-run homer from Brooks Baldwin. Charleston scored one in the third, once in the fourth andtwice in the fifth to whittle the deficit to 5-4 after fifth. The Cougars then struck for three in the sixth to take a 7-5 lead on a two-run triple by Harrison Hawkins.

A two-run seventh would push the lead to 9-5 before UNCW answered in the top of the ninth, scoring four runs to even the tally at 9-9. Hawkins delivered again in the home half, bouncing a ball to third that allowed Hopkins to score and hand the Cougars the 10-9 walk-off win.

Hawkins capped his big weekend with a 2-for-5 effort while driving in his seventh and eighth runs of the series with a two-run triple in the sixth. The senior outfielder also reached on a walk and scored twice.
