Joseph Mershon scampered home on a Tanner Steffy infield single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth as College of Charleston walked off with a 5-4 win over The Citadel on Tuesday evening at Patriots Point.

The Citadel jumped out to a 2-0 lead heading into the bottom of the fourth when the Cougars pushed across three to go ahead, 3-2, on a two-out, two-run single by Luke Stageberg. A two-run top of the fifth put The Citadel back in front, 4-3 – a lead it would hold into the home half of the eighth. Tanner McCallister then delivered a leadoff solo homer to left to knot the score at 4-4 going into the ninth.

After Jordan Carr stranded two base runners in the top of the inning, Joseph Mershon drew a leadoff walk to put the winning run on first. Back-to-back wild pitches would move him to third before Steffy beat out a chopper to third with two outs, allowing Mershon to scamper home and score the winning run. Carr tossed three shutout innings of relief to earn his first win of the season, scattering three hits and striking out one to keep the Cougars within striking distance.
