College of Charleston 5, Delaware 3: The Blue received a three-run blast from first baseman Nick Patten, but ultimately dropped a heartbreaker Friday night.

In the ninth, Delaware placed the tying runs on the corners with two outs in the ninth and ran Kevin Mohollen on a 1-2 pitch. After originally calling Mohollen safe, the umpires met and overturned the call, ending the game.

The Blue Hens (22-18, 7-6 CAA) fell behind early Friday night, as Charleston scored an early three runs (two earned) off starter Kyle Hinton (5-4) in the opening frame. Trying to make a dent in the Charleston lead, Delaware placed a pair of runners on base to begin the second, as Diaz Nardo doubled, and Calvin Scott singled to third. A pair of ground balls ultimately ended the threat.

After the Cougars (28-15, 10-6 CAA) added a run in the second, the Blue Hens answered in the third. Mohollen and Kyle Baker singled for the Hens, bringing up Patten with two outs. The slugger took the first pitch he saw from Charleston lefty Evan Sisk (8-3) to deep left-center hitting a palm tree way past the outfield wall.

The game remained 4-3 until the sixth when Charleston added its fifth and final run of the night on a single.

Delaware placed a runner on base in every inning except the fifth but hit just 4-15 with runners on base.
