ccubase-michael paez vs toledo 3 (2)Down 4-1 through four innings, #23/30 Coastal Carolina scored one run in the fifth, two in the sixth, three in the seventh and three in the eighth to cruise to a 10-4 victory Tuesday night at Wake Forest (19-12).

The Chanticleers (21-7) are 5-0 versus members of the Atlantic Coast Conference this season with previous wins versus Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, North Carolina and Clemson.

Michael Paez was 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored. However, his biggest play came on the defensive side. In the bottom of the sixth and the game tied at 4-4, the CCU infield was drawn in as Wake Forest had a runner on third. Nick Bisplinghoff hit a ball back up the middle. Paez made a diving grab and recovered to throw a strike to Schroeder, who applied the tag and retired Zach Piazza.

Zach Remillard and Tyler Chadwick contributed two hits while Casey Schroeder hit a three-run home run and Chadwick drive in two.

Wake Forest jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Joey Rodriguez drew a one-out walk and Nate Mondou followed with a two-run home run that just cleared the right field wall. The Deacons threatened in the second, putting each of the first two runners on base. However, CCU starter Shane Sawczak induced a pair of fly outs and a recorded a strikeout to escape.

The Chants cut their deficit in half to start the third inning as David Parrett hit a leadoff home run to right center field, his eighth of the season. Coastal later loaded the bases with two outs, but Wake Forest starter Paul Kirkpatrick kept the score 2-1 with a ground out.

The Deacons pushed their advantage to 4-1 with a pair of runs in the third. With one out and bases loaded, the Chants nearly turned a double play but Stuart Fairchild just beat the throw at first to drive in Rodriguez.

Two Wake Forest errors led to a Chanticleer run in the fifth to make the score 4-2. Anthony Marks walked, stole second, advanced to third on a throwing error and scored when Connor Owings reached first on a fielding error by the WFU pitcher.

Coastal Carolina tied the game, 4-4, in the top of the sixth inning. Remillard took advantage of some miscommunication as his high fly ball between the pitcher and second baseman fell untouched for an infield single. Schroeder walked before a Parrett sacrifice bunt moved the runners to second and third. Chadwick chopped a single through the right side of the infield to bring home both Remillard and Schroeder.

Coastal took its first lead of the game in the top of the seventh. Paez hit a leadoff double and moved to third on an Owings sacrifice bunt. With two outs, Remillard walked. Schroeder made the Deacons pay as he drilled a 3-1 pitch over the right center field wall to give CCU a 7-4 lead.

The Chants added three runs in the top of the eighth to lead 10-4. Chadwick hit a leadoff double and moved to third on a Josh Crump sacrifice bunt. An error on the play allowed Crump to reach first and he later stole second. Marks lined out to left field but it was deep enough to bring home Chadwick while a throwing error allowed Crump to take third. Paez singled to left to plate Crump. Paez stole second and scored on an RBI single by Owings.

Brock Hunter (1-0) was credited with the won. One of four CCU pitchers, Hunter pitched 1.1 innings of scoreless baseball with a walk and strikeout. John McCarren (0-1) took the loss, allowing three hits and three runs in two innings.

Coastal Carolina will return to league play by hosting Longwood. Due to the Easter holiday, the series will be played Thursday (6 om), Friday (7 pm on ESPN3) and Saturday (2 pm).
