STATESBORO, Ga. — Joseph Mershon and Trotter Harlan were involved on all six of College of Charleston’s runs, CJ Czerwinski battled through five and one-third innings to earn the win and Zach Williams tossed three shutout frames to pick up the save as the Cougars held off Georgia Southern to extend their winning streak to three games with a 6-3 victory on Tuesday evening at JI Clements Stadium.

The teams traded runs in the third inning with Harlan doubling home Mershon and Georgia Southern’s Steven Curry plating Parker Biederer with a single to send the game into the fourth tied at 1-1. Mershon broke the deadlock with a two-run double in the fifth and scored on a wild pitch to put the Cougars ahead 4-1.

Christian Avant answered for the Eagles with a two-run homer in the sixth to trim the deficit to one at 4-3. The Cougars would capitalize on Eagle miscues in both the eighth and ninth to add two insurance runs and Williams shut the door with three scoreless to earn his second save of the season.

Zach Williams came into an emotionally-charged one-run game in the seventh inning and silenced the Eagles’ bats with three one-hit frames to help the Cougars close out their third straight win. The junior southpaw fanned two and stranded runners in scoring position in both the seventh and ninth innings.
