Freshman Wes Hatley, a prep standout at South Stanly High, earned his first career win as the Charlotte 49ers completed a weekend series sweep with a 4-1 victory over Harvard on Sunday at Hayes Stadium.
Former Independence High star Corey Shaylor shot a ground ball down the third base line for an RBI single to break open a one-all tie in the sixth inning, with Charlotte (11-5) adding two more runs for the win.
The two teams combined for 46 runs in the first two games of their three-game series. Hatley was the pitcher of record when Charlotte took the lead. He tossed 1.2 innings of hitless baseball, struck out three and walked one for his first career decision (1-0).
Charlotte will play at N.C. A&T on Tuesday at 1 p.m. in a make-up game from earlier this season. The 49ers open Atlantic 10 Conference play next weekend at home versus St. Bonaventure.
NOTES: The four runs were the fewest for Charlotte in a win this season... Charlotte is averaging 9.8 runs per game overall, 10.6 per game at home... Charlotte batted .429 as a team for the weekend, with 14 extra-base hits, including two triples and five home runs.
