MOBILE, Ala. -- Cody Martin hit a pinch-hit three-run homer with two outs in the eighth to lead College of Charleston past South Alabama.

With the Cougars (1-0) trailing 2-1, Martin pinch hit for catcher Jimmy Holton, and in his first at-bat as a Cougar, Martin blasted the ball over the right field fence.

Kyle Owings pitched the seventh inning to earn his first win of the season for the Cougars. David Peterson pitched two scoreless innings for the save.
