HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Frank Suarez (Miami, Fla.) drove in three runs as the Cobras defeated the Panthers of Claflin University 9-1 on Tuesday afternoon.

Goot (2-2) earned his second straight mid-week win tossing seven innings, allowing just one run on five hits with six punch-outs.
Suarez finished the game 1-for-3 with three RBIs and a run scored, while Lucas Britt (Myrtle Beach, S.C.) was 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. Keith Wolf (O'Fallon, Ill.) was 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored and Chad Nader (Rock Hill, S.C.) had a pair of hits with an RBI and a run scored.
