Charleston, S.C. - The Citadel-Western Carolina baseball game scheduled for Saturday, April 22 at Riley Park has been postponed due to the threat of inclement weather. After being moved up to noon from 2 p.m., the game will now be part of a doubleheader on Sunday, April 23 with first pitch slated for noon.
The Bulldogs earned a 5-4 win over the Catamounts in game one of the three-game set on Friday, April 21. Freshman Wes Wrenn earned his third win of the season as he tossed seven innings, allowing three runs on nine hits. The right-hander also registered seven strikeouts, only one shy of his career-high eight Ks.

Freshman designated hitter Sonny Meade tied his career-high three hits as he was 3-for-5, including an RBI and scoring once.
