Michael Kohn had two hits and two RBI.

Freshman Hutson Dodds belted his first career homer and Curtis Dowling tossed five strong inning in relief lifting the College of Charleston to a 9-1 win over Charleston Southern in college baseball action before 411 at Patriots Point Field on Tuesday.

“I thought we had a very good offensive approach at the plate tonight,” said Cougar coach John Pawlowski.  “It was great to see freshman Hutson Dodds step up, and I also thought Curtis Dowling did an outstanding job for us out of the pen.”

Dowling (1-0), a sophomore, came on in the second inning and allowed just one run on only five hits with six strikeouts. 

The Cougars (15-6) jumped out to a 2-0 first inning advantage on Chris Campbell’s fourth homer of the season, a towering two-run shot to left.

The Cougars got a two-run triple from Oliver Marmol and an RBI single from Stuart Haywood in the second inning that stretched their lead to 5-0.

The Bucs (11-15) cut the margin to 5-1 on Anthony Hayes two-out infield single in the third inning that scored Adam Brown.

Michael Harrington had an RBI single and Michael Kohn a two-run single in the fourth that increased Charleston’s lead to 8-1.  Dodds’ solo homer down the left field line in the fifth closed out the scoring.

Mike Mead (1-3) suffered the loss allowing five runs in 1 2/3 innings of work.

The Cougars open Southern Conference play with a three-game series with Western Carolina at Patriots Point beginning Friday.  First pitch is scheduled for 6:00.  Charleston Southern plays host to Maryland-Eastern Shore in a 2:00 start on Wednesday.
