Chants’ bats erupt to take rubber match from Lancers

ccubase-GK Young vs App StateBilly Cooke drove in three, including two in a pivotal nine-run second inning, to lead #22 Coastal Carolina to an 11-2 victory at Longwood Saturday morning.

With the win, the Chanticleers win the weekend series and improve to 13-8 overall, 2-1 in the Big South. Coastal has also won six of its last seven.

Cooke was 2-for-5 with a run scored while Anthony Marks and Tyler Chadwick each drove in two. Zach Remillard was 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored.

CCU starter Alex Cunningham (3-1) earned the win. He pitched six innings and allowed three hits, two runs and four walks with four strikeouts. Freshman Austin Kitchen, who picked up his first career win last Wednesday at UNC Wilmington, earned his first save of the season Saturday. He pitched the final three innings and retired all nine batters he faced with five strikeouts.

Longwood (11-9, 1-2) jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first. Sammy Miller hit a leadoff infield single. He moved to second on a passed ball, took third on a sacrifice bunt and scored on an RBI double from Michael Osinski.

Coastal sent 13 men to the plate and exploded for nine runs in the top of the second. The Chants loaded the bases in the top of the second thanks to a single, walk and fielder’s choice. Cooke then lined a two-run single up the middle to bring home Remillard and Connor Owings. A walk to Seth Lancaster loaded the bases once again and Matt Beaird was hit by a pitch to force home Chadwick. Marks welcomed new Longwood pitcher Cody Boydstun with a two-run single through the right side. Michael Paez followed with a hot shot past the third baseman to score Beaird. G.K. Young walked to load the bases and Remillard plated the eighth run of the inning with a sacrifice fly to right field. After the fourth walk of the inning to reload the bases, Paez scored on a wild pitch. Chadwick’s fly ball to center was deep enough to score Young for the ninth and final run of the inning.

The Lancers added a run in the sixth to make the score 9-2. Miller and C.J. Roth started the home half with consecutive walks. Miller took third on a ground out and scored when Alex Lewis reached on a fielder’s choice.

In the eighth, Owings drew a two-out walk and scored on an RBI double down the right field line by Chadwick. Chadwick then scored on an RBI single by Cooke to give CCU an 11-2 cushion.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Tuesday at the College of Charleston.
