Thursday's baseball game between No. 24 Appalachian State and Western Carolina was suspended due to rain and lightning with WCU leading, 5-0, in the top of the seventh inning. When play was halted for the second time,

the Mountaineers had a runner on first base with nobody out in the seventh. There was also a one-hour-and-37-minute delay in the bottom of the fourth inning. Western sandwiched all of five of its runs around the long delay in the fourth.
The suspended game will resume on Friday at 4 p.m. at WCU's Hennon Stadium, followed by the regularly scheduled second contest of the three-game weekend series.
College of Charleston's Brandon Murray and Brandon Glazer went a combined 5-for-9 with seven RBI as College of Charleston delivered the knockout blow to UNCG's postseason hopes, 11-6, in Southern Conference action on Thursday evening at UNCG Baseball Stadium. The win pulls the Cuogars within one-half game of ASU for first place in the SoCon standings.
In turn, the loss and coupled with Furman's 12-1 win over Davidson, the Spartans failed to make the postseason for the second time in three years. With the victory, Furman clinched the eighth seed and knocked both UNCG and Davidson out of postseason contention.
