Linzy Rother launched a grand slam and tied a Charleston Southern single-game program record with 7 RBIs as the Buccaneers throttled Gardner-Webb, 8-1, in Boiling Springs, N.C.
The only other CSU player to drive in seven runs was Cindy Ramsey in a game against USC-Aiken in 1988.
Rother delivered her biggest blow in the top of the first, connecting for her third homer of the year, a drive over the left-field fence to bring home Jana Matthews, Megan Lombard and Jessica Brock.
Rother added RBIs for CSU (28-21, 11-7) in the fifth.
