Campbell walks off with win over No. 25 Chanticleers

ccubase-paez2After Coastal Carolina scored five unanswered runs in the final three innings, Campbell scratched together four hits, including a walk-off bunt single, to score two runs in the bottom of the ninth for a 10-9 victory Thursday evening at Jim Perry Stadium.

The 25th-ranked Chanticleers (34-17, 16-6) looked in good shape after Casey Schroeder hit a go-ahead home run in the top of the ninth and Andrew Beckwith got a quick out to start the bottom of the ninth. However, Seth LaRue singled through the right side of the infield to start the ninth-inning comeback by the Camels (30-22, 11-11).

Pinch hitter Danny Pardo hit a chopper up the middle, which deflected off Beckwith’s glove to squirt through to center field, and pinch runner Drew Butler moved to third. Anthony Lopez followed with a single up the middle to drive in Butler and put runners on the corners. Coastal intentionally walked Brian Taylor to load the bases. Austin Beard laid down a safety squeeze bunt for an RBI single to bring home Pardo for the game-winner.

Cole Hallum (1-1) was credited with the win. He pitched two innings, allowing two hits and three runs (one earned). Beckwith (4-4) was the tough-luck loser. The sophomore pitched a career-high 6.1 innings in relief of starter Bobby Holmes. Beckwith was sharp as 15 of his 19 outs were ground outs while he allowed 10 hits and five runs (three earned).

The teams combined for 27 hits. Cedric Mullins, Hallum and LaRue each had three hits for the Camels while Kyle Leady, Lopez and Beard each contributed two hits. For the Chants, Michael Paez, G.K. Young, Zach Remillard and Schroeder each had two hits.

Coastal Carolina turned an error and passed ball into two runs in the top of the first. Anthony Marks reached on error and Paez walked. After a passed ball moved the runners up 90 feet, Connor Owings hit a fly ball to right field which was deep enough to score Marks and move Paez to third. Two batters later, Remillard hit an RBI triple.

Campbell answered with three runs in the home half. Mullins hit a leadoff single and, with one out, Leady was hit by a pitch. Hallum followed with an RBI double to right field and LaRue delivered a two-run single to center.

The Camels added two runs in the second for a 5-2 lead. Beard hit a two-out single and scored on an RBI double from Mullins. After a bit batter, Leady drove in Mullins with a single to center field.

Coastal scored two runs in the third to trail 5-4. Young doubled off the right-center field wall and scored on an RBI single by Remillard, who advanced to second on an attempted play at the plate. Remillard advanced to third on a long fly out from Schroeder and scored when Tyler Chadwick lined an RBI single down the left field line.

Campbell pushed its advantage to 6-4 in the fifth. Hallum singled and advanced to second on an error. LaRue followed with a single through the right side of the infield to plate Hallum.

The Camels scored two runs in the sixth to lead 8-4. Beard reached on an error and moved to third on a single from Mullins. Steven Leonard drove in Beard with a sacrifice fly to right field, moving Mullins to second.  An infield single from Leady put runners on the corners and set up an RBI single from Hallum.

The Chants got those two runs back in the top of the seventh, but still trailed 8-6. Paez hit a leadoff triple and scored on a single by Owings. Owings advanced to second on a walk to Young and took third on a fielder’s choice. Schroeder came through with a sacrifice fly to bring home Owings.

In the eighth, Coastal took advantage of a two, two-out errors to tie the game 8-8. With two outs, Paez hit a double down the left field line. Owings hit a ground ball to first for the apparent third out but a throwing error allowed Owings to be safe and Paez to score from second. Young then hit a hit fly ball to shallow left field but the Camels were unable to make the play and Owings, running on the play and alertly never stopping, scored all the first base to knot the game.

After a quick bottom of the eighth, Coastal kept the rally going in the ninth as Schroeder hit a 2-1 pitch off the scoreboard in right field. The blast was his 13th of the season and gave Coastal a 9-8 lead.

The teams will play game two of the series on Friday at 4 pm. The regular-season finale on Saturday is set for 4:30 pm and will telecast on American Sports Network.
