The Northeastern Huskies defeated College of Charleston by a score of 6-3 on Friday afternoon to move into first place in the competitive CAA conference race. The Huskies got an impressive start from Mike Fitzgerald who allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four and walking one to improve his record to 4-1 on the year. The Cougars turned to Bailey Ober for the first time in five weeks as he started strong striking out the first two batters before the Huskies were able to get to him for two runs in the inning.
The big hit of the game was a four inning two run homer by Northeastern second baseman Scott Holzwasser which went far over the wall in left and the bullpens to give the Huskies a 5-2 lead. Each team would add a run before coming to the ninth inning with the Huskies leading 6-3.
Northeastern brought in junior left-handed pitcher Tyler Robinson who has been up and down this season struggling with walks according to Northeastern head coach Mike Glavine. Robinson didn’t struggle on Friday though as he struck out the side to pick up his sixth save of the season.
