Cougars take series over Bulldogs with 8-0 win

Freshman Bailey Ober continued his hot start for College of Charleston, tossing a two-hitter in an 8-0 victory over The Citadel in the rubber game of the series Monday night at Riley Park.

The Cougars (12-3) took the final two games of the series after The Citadel won a 5-4, 11-inning thriller on Saturday. The Bulldogs dropped to 7-9 heading into Wednesday's 5 p.m. home against USC Upstate, their last contest before the start of Southern Conference play this weekend at Davidson.

Ober improved to 4-0 and lowered his ERA to an even 1.00 in 27 innings. He allowed a leadoff single to Mason Davis in the first and a two-out bunt single to Drew DeKerlegand  in the fourth, but the only other Bulldog base runners came on two hit batters and a Cougar error. Ober did not issue a walk and struck out eight.

The complete game shutout was the first against The Citadel since Jordan Smith of Western Carolina turned the trick in a 6-0 Catamount victory on May 20, 2011. The Bulldogs put two runners on base in only one inning, and Ober faced the minimum 15 batters over the final five frames.

College of Charleston got the only runs it needed in the top of the first against Bulldog starter Kevin Connell on back-to-back RBI singles by Carl Wise and Brandon Glazer. Wise drove in a run with a triple in the third and scored on a base hit by Alex Pastorius to make it 4-0.

It stayed that way over the next four innings as Zach Sherrill and Austin Livingston  both worked a pair of shutout innings out of The Citadel bullpen. The Cougars reached Livingston for two runs in the eighth and tacked on another two in the ninth to break the game open.
