The Charlotte 49ers’ bats look as though they have awakened. Brandon Vogler helped his own cause with a terrific showing on the mound.
Logan Sherer drove in three runs to give him seven RBI in four games, Corbin Shive notched two RBI of his own and Vogler tossed six shutout innings as the Niners picked up their second win in a row, a 9-0 victory over UNC Ashevile.

Charlotte struck in the bottom of the first on a deep RBI double by Corbin Shive, while a pair of bases-loaded walks and a Zach Jarrett single made it 4-0 through three.
But they weren’t done. Sherer cleared the bases with a two-out double in the fourth to put his team ahead 7-0, while two more came across in the 7th to stretch it to 9-0. That was more than enough for Brandon Vogler, who pitched six rock solid innings, allowed just three hits and struck out a career-high seven for his first collegiate win.
Charlotte seems to have found their offense in this midweek stretch. After just 19 runs over their previous six-game losing streak, they’ve scored 20 combined in the past two games.
A Conference USA weekend set at Old Dominion awaits the Niners as they look for their first league win. Friday’s game is set for 6pm while Saturday and Sunday are scheduled for 3pm and 1pm, respectively.
