Mt. PLEASANT, S.C. — Connor Campbell spun eight shutout innings and College of Charleston scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth to break the game open as the Cougars held Tennessee Tech off the board in an 8-0 series-clinching win on Sunday afternoon at Patriots Point.
The Golden Eagles threatened with a baserunner in each of the first four innings before the Cougars broke the deadlock in the home half of the fourth. After Tanner Steffy reached on a fielder’s choice, Ari Sechopoulos laced a double to right center allowing Steffy to motor around from first to score the game’s first run.
Sechopoulos would drive in the Cougars’ second run with a sac fly in the sixth to give Campbell a 2-0 cushion. Tanner McCallister delivered the key hit to break the game open in the eighth with a two-out grand slam to center to push the lead to 6-0. Luke Stageberg followed two batters later with a two-run shot to right to cap the scoring.
Campbell pitched around a leadoff baserunner in each of the first three innings and frustrated the Golden Eagles throughout his eight shutout frames of work to earn his fourth win of the season. The freshman southpaw scattered seven hits, struck out seven and stranded eight Eagles on the base paths to pick up his second win in as many starts.
The Cougars will travel to Clemson, S.C. on Tuesday to take on Clemson in non-conference midweek action. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
