Chanticleers squeeze past Tar Heels in 11th inning

ccubase-celebrateMichael Paez accounted for all three of Coastal Carolina’s runs as the Chanticleers  (15-19) rallied to claim a 3-2 win in 11 innings at #29 North Carolina (19-14) Wednesday night at Boshamer Stadium.

Coastal executed a squeeze bunt in the ninth inning to tie the game and again in the 11th to score the winning run. Paez was 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI.

With one out in the 11th innings, Paez was hit by a pitch. Tyler Chadwick was given a second-life at the plate as his pop up foul was dropped by the third baseman. On the next pitch, Chadwick lined a single to right field, allowing Paez to take third. Zack Remillard laid down a safety squeeze and the Tar Heels were not able to get Paez at the plate to give the Chanticleers a 3-2 lead.

Tyler Poole, who worked the last three innings, worked a perfect 11th inning with two strikeouts to earn the win and improve to 1-2 on the season.

In the bottom of the first, Skye Bolt hit a leadoff single and Korey Dunbar followed with a two-run home run to left field for an early 2-0 lead.

Coastal loaded the bases in the sixth thanks to a pair of walks and a Tar Heel error. Paez and started the frame with back-to-back walks. For Chadwick it was his third in as many at bats. Remillard loaded the bases after laying down a sacrifice bunt but reaching on a throwing error. G.K. Young lined out to right field but Paez was still able to score on the sacrifice fly to cut the CCU deficit in half, 2-1.

The Chanticleers nearly tied the game in the seventh. Nick Oberg drew a leadoff walk and advanced to second on a Steven Whitaker sacrifice bunt. Two batters later, Paez singled to center, Oberg tried to score on the play, but Bolt’s throw beat him to the plate to keep UNC on top 2-1.

Coastal tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the ninth. Pinch hitter Anthony Marks drew a leadoff walk and stole second. Connor Owings followed with an infield single, moving Marks to third. Paez executed a safety squeeze, bringing home Marks for the tying run.

Chadwick was intentionally walked in the ninth inning as he tied a CCU single-game record with five walks in a contest.

Dalton Moats pitched the first four innings and allowed the two-run home run and one walk. Cole Schaeffer pitched 2.2 scoreless innings. Brock Hunter and Andrew Beckwith each pitched two-thirds of an innings to set the stage for Poole.

Spencer Trayner (1-2) suffered the loss, allowing one run and one hit in 1.2 innings.
