The West Virginia baseball team lost their first game of the season, 6-3, at Charlotte on Friday.

The Mountaineers (0-1) got into an early hole, down 2-0, within the first few innings, but responded when Kyle Davis hit a 2-run homer to tie the game in the top of the fifth.

Jimmy Galusky scored two innings later off of a Braden Zarbnisky double to give WVU a 3-2 lead going into the seventh inning stretch.

The 49ers (1-0) scored four in the bottom of that same inning to take the lead, 6-3.

West Virginia never recovered.

BJ Myers took the loss and pitched for 6.1 innings. He finished with four earned runs, six hits and three strikeouts.

The series with Charlotte will resume on Saturday at 1 p.m. The game will be streamed on C-USA.tv, but requires a subscription.
