WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — The College of Charleston sent 14 men to the plate and scored eight runs in the top of the ninth inning to rally from a 4-1 deficit and defeat William & Mary, 9-4, in the opening game of a crucial weekend series on Friday afternoon in Colonial Athletic Association play.

HOW IT HAPPENED

William & Mary starter Wade Strain kept the Cougars’ bats silent until the eighth inning while his offense plated four runs over the six frames to give him a 4-0 lead. With one out in the eighth, Trotter Harlan took Strain deep to left for a solo homer to trim the deficit to 4-1 and force the Tribe to make a call to the bullpen. The Cougars took full advantage in the ninth, sending 14 men to the plate and scoring a season-high eight runs on six hits to rally for a 9-4 victory.

STANDOUT PERFORMANCE

Jared Kirven went 3-for-5 and delivered a key two-run single with the bases loaded in the ninth to give the Cougars an 8-4 cushion. The three-hit effort marks Kirven’s sixth multi-hit game of the season and fourth with three base knocks.
