Through four innings, Wofford pitcher Adam Scott was locked in a 1-1 game and waiting for a little more run support.

He got it with a couple of long balls.

Mack Nathanson hit a three-run homer to center against a strong breeze in the fifth and Colin Davis had a solo shot to left in the sixth Thursday night as Wofford went on to an 8-4 victory against East Tennessee State at Russell C. King Field.

Scott (8-5) worked into the eighth for the victory. He allowed an unearned run in the third, when he struck out the side. ETSU had three hits in the first four batters of the eighth and scored twice to end his night. Scott, the NCAA active leader in strikeouts, finished with eight more and walked only one. He allowed a season-high 10 hits, but the Buccaneers weren’t able to piece them together.

Wofford is playing host this weekend to the final games of the regular season. The series continues 3 p.m. Friday and then concludes 1 p.m. Saturday. The Terriers (34-20, 14-8) can climb into the No. 2 seed of the upcoming Southern Conference tournament, which begins Tuesday in Greenville, if they win two more games against ETSU than current second-place Samford wins against VMI.

McClain Bradley and Andrew Orzel had back-to-back RBI singles in the seventh. Brett Rodriguez added a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Max McDougald had an RBI single to knock in Lawson Hill, who had a two-out double, in the second inning and finished 2-for-2 with a pair of walks. Alec Cargin was 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Nathanson had two hits and scored twice. Rodriguez was on base three times with a pair of walks.
