GREENSBORO, N.C. - Ty Good tied his career-high with 11 strikeouts moving into third place on the career strikeouts list at the College of Charleston Friday night as the Cougars pounced to a 16-5 win over North Carolina A&T.

Good entered the night just one strikeout shy of tying Bailey Ober’s 254 as a Cougar collecting number 255 to end the first inning. His dominant outing gives the senior 83 strikeouts on the season, just five shy of his career-high 88 set last season.

Charleston’s offense gave Good nine runs of support over the first five innings with six hitters collecting multi-hit performances and three driving in at least three in the 11-run win.

Tyler Sorrentino, Trotter Harlan and Luke Wood all drove in a trio while Khyree Miller had a team-high three hits and three runs. Cole Mathis drew a career-high four walks as the Cougars worked 12 free passes on the night.

• Three runs came around to score before the first out of the second was recorded as Cam Dean doubled home Khyree Miller, Noah Carter singled in JT Marr and Tyler Sorrentino’s RBI groundout brought home Dean.

• An error on a double play attempt brought home the fourth run before Trotter Harlan made it a 5-0 lead with his first of 3 RBI on the night singling home Miller.

• Harlan added a two-run single in the fourth to make it 7-0, then another came home on a bases-loaded ground ball double play for an 8-0 Cougar advantage.

• North Carolina A&T finally got some offense in the fifth as Cameran Brantley hit a solo home run and a double play ball scored a second run.

• The Aggies would get back within 9-4 through six, but Good left it there fanning three in the seventh to match his career high of 11 strikeouts.

• Luke Wood hit an opposite field home run to lead off the eighth and make it 10-4 as the floodgates opened with a seven-spot when all was told.

• Khyree Miller singled in Tanner McCallister, Sorrentino doubled home Dean and Miller, a wild pitch scored Sorrentino and Wood singled home Mershon and Harlan in the eighth.
