WATCH: Charlotte downs USM to force decisive game


BILOXI – The Charlotte 49ers gave Southern Miss a little taste of its own medicine Saturday in the Conference USA Tournament. After former Southern Miss star Taylor Braley hit a walk-off on Charlotte in the same semifinal game to force another contest, the same happened Saturday night at MGM Park.

Charlotte’s Tommy Bullock sent a three-run home run to left field off Southern Miss’ Matt Wallner to give it the 7-4 win over the Golden Eagles. The Charlotte win forces another game Sunday morning at 9 a.m. for a chance to play for the C-USA Tournament Championship. The title game later in the afternoon is not yet set.

Southern Miss head coach Scott Berry spoke with the media after the loss.
