CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern’s (6-7) pitching staff held Delaware State (2-8) hitless through the first seven and one third innings on Sunday. The Bucs wrapped up the four-game series sweep with an 8-3 win.

Cam Weinberger (1-1) was the winning pitcher after he got things started for the Bucs. While he did allow a run in the first inning, he went on to throw six no-hit innings with just the one run allowed, striking out four. Connor Yoder picked up where his teammate left off, tossing a hitless seventh inning with a strikeout. The Hornets finally got a hit with one out in the seventh inning.

By that point, the Bucs already had gotten out to a seven-run lead. CSU had runners at the corners with two out in the first inning when a ground ball to short could’ve ended the inning, but Henry Gibson beat the throw to second and a run scored. Gibson and Ryan Rizk scored on the next play, when the Delaware State center fielder dropped a fly ball, giving CSU a 3-1 lead.

The Bucs added five more runs in the sixth inning, three on a long home run by Shane Kelleher, and two more on RBI singles from Alex Andronica and Christian Maggio.

Hiram Davis (0-1) took the loss for Delaware State, pitching two innings and allowing three runs, one earned, with a walk and two strikeouts.
