The Citadel 7-5, UNC Asheville 5-3

Drew DeKerlegand and Hughston Armstrong provided the offensive spark, and The Citadel bullpen pitched out of bases- loaded jams in the final inning of both games to lead the Bulldogs to a doubleheader sweep of UNC Asheville (4-7) at Riley Park in the Charleston Crab House Shootout.

In the opener, DeKerlegand had two singles, a double and a triple, scoring three runs and driving in three.

In the nightcap, The Citadel (7-5)scored twice in the fourth to break a 3-3 tie. Bailey Rush doubled to right and Armstrong followed with a triple to right center, giving the Bulldogs the lead for good.
