ROUNDUP: Delaware State falls to Charleston Southern in baseball

Charleston Southern right fielder Cole German led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a home run to give the Buccaneers a 3-2 win over Delaware State in baseball on Saturday afternoon.

The Hornets (1-1) led 2-0 before Charleston Southern scored two runs in the eighth to tie the game.

The loss overshadowed a strong performance by DSU starter Sean McGrath, who allowed two runs — one earned — and struck out four while walking two in 7.1 innings.

Reliever Darrien Ragins struck out the only two batters he faced in the eighth inning to get the Hornets out of a jam, but surrendered German’s homer in the ninth to suffer the loss.

With the bases loaded, Jared Gillis reached on a throwing error, allowing two runners to score.

Charleston Southern was aided by two Delaware State errors and a wild pitch in its two-run eighth inning to tie the game.

Darnell Maisonet was 2-for-2 at the plate and Kwestin Smith also had two hits for the Hornets. Maisonet is 4-for-6 (.667) and Austin Bentley has four hits in nine at-bats (.444) in DSU’s first two game.

Freshman left hander Garrett Lawson, a Dover High product, is scheduled to make his debut as today’s starter for the Hornets.
