Cougars-Bulldogs Suspended In Fifth Due To Lighting Malfunction

CHARLESTON, SC - Wednesday night's game between The Citadel baseball team and the College of Charleston was suspended in the top of the fifth due to a technical difficulty with one of the banks of lights at Joe Riley Park.

The game will be resumed at a later date, which will be determined and announced once both coaching staffs have had a chance to review their upcoming schedules more closely.

Kyle Smith was pitching for The Citadel when the game was suspended in the top of the fifth with one out on the board and two Cougars aboard.

The Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second when Ben Peden singled to right-center field, scoring Ryan McCarthy from second. McCarthy led off the frame with a single of his own to right-center field.

The Cougars then tied the game in the top of the third when Logan Mcrae sent a sacrifice fly to the outfield that scored Luke Morgan. In the very next inning, Tommy Richter homered to right field to give Charleston the 2-1 lead.

The Bulldogs will now turn their attention to Towson as the Tigers travel to Charleston this weekend for a three-game series at Joe Riley Park. The first game of the series will be on Friday, April 13 at 3 p.m. The game will be part of a doubleheader with the Charleston RiverDogs. The Bulldogs and Tigers will then pick the series back up on Saturday, April 14 at 2 p.m. before concluding the weekend at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 15.

The Cougars will return to the diamond on Friday in the first game of a pivotal weekend series against Northeastern in Colonial Athletic Association play. First pitch is set for 6:00 pm.
