Right-hander Charles Williams threw five shut-out innings in relief on Friday, April 21, but it was not enough in the Bisons' 3-1 loss to Charleston Southern.
The Bucs struck for a single run in each of the first three innings against Bisons' right-hander Paul Piennette to take an early 3-0 lead.
Williams relieved Piennette to start the fourth inning. In three innings, Piennette gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out two.
Williams held the Bucs scoreless over the remainder of the game, giving up just four hits.
The Bisons broke the shut-out with a run in the eighth. Tadd Brewer led off the inning with a single. With one out, Zac Miller singled to left field putting runners on first and second for Ryan Price who followed with an RBI single to center.
Price and Jeff Baumgartner led the Bisons on offense with two hits each. Miller and Brewer recorded the only other Lipscomb hits in the game.
With his performance, Williams lowered his team-leading ERA to 2.74. In 42.2 innings this season, he has given up 20 runs, 13 earned, on 48 hits.
The Bisons continue the series with Charleston Southern on Saturday, April 22, with a game at 1 p.m.
