Chants complete first series sweep of Sun Belt member

ccubase-25pitchFour Chanticleers had two hits each and Jason Bilous struck out seven to lead Coastal Carolina to a 6-1 win over Arkansas State Sunday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium and earn a series sweep over the Red Wolves (11-12, 2-4).

Billy Cooke, Peyton Isaacson, Wood Myers and Matt Beaird each collected two hits while Isaacson and Jordan Gore each had two RBI in the win. For the weekend, Coastal batted .337 as eight of the nine starters had at least two hits over the three games set.

Bilous improved to 3-0 for the season as he struck out seven over six complete innings with one walk. He did allow six hits and the one run he allowed came on a wild pitch.

Coastal (15-9, 4-2) got on the scoreboard first with a tally in the bottom of the first. Cooke had a leadoff single, Isaacson walked and, with two outs, Seth Lancaster walked to load the bases. Myers hit a ground ball to shortstop, but Lancaster’s hustle beat the throw at second, allowing Cooke to score.

The Chants added two runs in the second. With runners on second and third, Gore reached on an RBI fielder’s choice, scoring Cory Wood. Peyton Isaacson followed by lacing a double to left-center field to bring home Gore for the 3-0 lead.

The Red Wolves cut their deficit to two, 3-1, with a run in the third. Alex Howard continued his solid weekend with a leadoff single. He then stole second and moved to third on a ground out. After a hit batter, Howard scored on a wild pitch.

Coastal got that run back and one more in the fourth. Matt Beaird drew a leadoff walk and Cooke lined a double down the third base line to put Beaird on third. The double by Cooke was his sixth consecutive hit over two games, going 4-for-4 on Saturday and getting hits in each of his first two official at bats on Sunday. Isaacson then plated Cooke with an RBI single to right field.

The Chants pushed their lead to 6-1 in the fifth. Dalton Ewing flared a two-out single to center fielder and stole second to set-up Cory Wood’s RBI double to left field.

Howard was 2-for-4 Sunday and scored A-State’s lone run. For the weekend he as 6-for-11 and scored four of his team’s seven runs for the weekend. Tyler Mitzel (0-2) suffered the loss for the Red Wolves as he allowed six hits and five runs over four innings.

Coastal Carolina will hit the road to play nationally-ranked North Carolina Tuesday in Chapel Hill. First pitch is set for 6 pm. Coastal will return home Wednesday (Mar. 29) at 6 pm) to host UNC Wilmington, which is a make-up for one of the two games versus the Seahawks from Mar. 14 and 15 that was postponed.
