Casey at the bat electrifies Shockers past Chanticleers

ccubase-32catcherslidePreseason All-American Casey Gillaspie accounted for four of Wichita State’s five runs to lead the Shockers (5-2) to a 5-2 victory over Coastal Carolina (2-4) Sunday afternoon in the 15th Annual Caravelle Resort’s Baseball at the Beach at Pelicans Ballpark.

The annual event will come to a close Monday as Coastal and Wichita State square off at 4 pm.

Gillaspie was 3-for-3 with an RBI, three runs scored and two walks. The first baseman has at leas two hits in all seven games for the Shockers this season. Tanner Dearman and Chase Simpson each added three hits for WSU as well.

Coastal Carolina struck first, scoring once in the second inning. Zach Remillard had a leadoff single and stole second. A Richard Carter single put runners on the corners. Nick Oberg drove in Remillard with a safety squeeze bunt.

The Shockers tied the game in the third. Gillaspie walked and moved to third on a Simpson two-out double. Gillaspie knotted the game on a wild pitch.

Wichita State was the recipient of back-to-back hits to start the fifth inning and take a 3-1 lead. Gillaspie singled up the middle and scored on Tyler Baker’s RBI triple down the right field line. Two batters later, Daniel Kihle lifted a single just beyond the CCU infield to pate Baker.

In the seventh, Wichita State tacked on another run thanks again to a Gillaspie leadoff single. Simpson advanced Gillaspie to second on a single and Micah Green brought Simpson home with a two-out single back up the middle.

Gillaspie continued his impressive game in the eighth. After a Dearman double, Gillaspie came through with an RBI single to center for a 5-1 WSU lead. Coastal answered with a run in the bottom of the eighth. Remillard singled and G.Y. Young walked to set up an RBI single by Richard Carter and provide the final 5-2 score.

Wichita State starter Sam Tewes (2-0) picked up the win. He allowed six hits, one run and one walk with four strikeouts. Foster Vielock entered in the eighth with one out and got an inning ending double play then worked a perfect ninth to earn his second save.

Coastal starter Tyler Herb (0-2) suffered the loss, allowing 11 hits and four runs over 6.2 innings with four strikeouts.
