Michael Kohn broke a ninth inning tie with an RBI double and Brandon Sizemore homered and collected four hits lifting the College of Charleston to an 8-6 win at Davidson and a sweep of its three-game Southern Conference baseball series at Wilson Field on Sunday.

Charleston, which improved to 97-22 in SoCon play over its last 119 regular season games, improved to 16-7 overall and 3-0 in league play.  The Cougars play at nationally ranked South Carolinat at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.  The Wildcats fell to 7-11 and 0-3.

Kohn's one-out double down the left field line scored Jeremie Tice from second to give the Cougars a 7-6 lead in the ninth inning.  Sizemore drove in Kohn for an 8-6 advantage when he grounded a double over the bag at third base.  Sizemore, who made a pair of spectacular defensive plays in the late innings, also belted his fourth homer of the season leading off the top of the eighth inning that gave Charleston a 6-5 lead.

Charleston scored five times with two outs in the third inning to take a 5-2 lead.  Tice's two-run double to left center tied the game and Michael Harrington followed with a base hit to right that plated Tice and gave Charleston a 3-2 lead.  Kohn added an RBI doube and Sizemore a run producing single to cap the inning.

Davidson tied the game at 5-all on two-out RBI singles by Pat Brady and Hugh Eden in the seventh inning.  The Wildcats tied the game at 6-all when Zach Kayne scored on a passed ball in the eighth inning.

Charleston starter Jake Goldberg scattered 10 hits over the first six innings.  He struck out four and left with a 5-3 lead.  Jesse Simpson (3-2) picked up the win in relief working the final three innings with four strikeouts.  He allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits.

Ian Horkley (0-3) suffered the loss surrendering three runs on four hits over 1 1/3 innings of relief.

Tice, who finished with two hits and two RBI, led off the decisive ninth with a double to center.  Brady and Danny Weiss led Davidson with three hits each.
