Harrison Hawkins smashed the Cougars’ record-setting seventh grand slam of the season, William Privette tossed six strong innings and head coach Chad Holbrook collected his 100th win at College of Charleston in an 11-2 win over The Citadel on Tuesday afternoon at Joe Riley Park.
The Cougars pounced on The Citadel starter for five runs in the opening two innings – highlighted by Hawkins’ second-inning grand slam – and added three in the third to take a commanding 8-0 lead into the fourth. Charleston added three in the sixth to reach double digits for the fourth time in the last five games. Privette retired the first 10 batters he faced as the Cougars held an opponent to two runs or less for the eighth time this season.
Privette limited the Bulldogs to one run on three hits and struck out three in six innings to earn his first collegiate win. He did not allow a baserunner until the fourth when the Bulldogs broke up the shutout with their lone run off the freshman righthander.
The Cougars will wrap up their midweek road swing on Wednesday evening when they travel to Spartanburg, S.C. to take on Wofford. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
