Chants cap long week with 10-inning loss to Wolfpack

An already-rough week for the Coastal Carolina baseball team ended even tougher Sunday night with an extra-inning loss to No. 10 North Carolina State.

For the second time in seven days, Coastal Carolina took a top 10 team to the brink, only to come up short twice as the Wolfpack (10-1) claimed a 5-4 win in 10 innings over the Chanticleers (4-6) in the final game of the Caravelle Resort’s Baseball at the Beach at Pelicans Ballpark. The loss capped a 1-3 tourney and their fifth loss in eight days.

Last Sunday, Coastal was tied with #8 Kentucky, 2-2, with the bases loaded in the eighth innings but could not score and gave up six runs in the ninth to lose 8-2. Tonight, both Coastal – in the seventh – and NC State – in the eighth – left the bases loaded with the game tied to force extra innings. (Overall, Coastal is 0-3 versus top 10 teams as it lost 7-1 at #1 North Carolina in the third game of the season.)

In the 10th, NC State’s Adam Morgan drew a one-out walk and moved to second when Bryan Adametz was hit by a pitch. Trae Turner followed with an RBI single to give the Wolfpack a 5-4 lead.

In the bottom of the 10th, Turner gave Coastal an opening as he committed a throwing error – his second error of the game – to allow Nick Oberg to reach with one out. Freshman Anthony Marks followed with a line drive, but Turner made a highlight-reel, leaping catch and doubled off pinch runner Brian Pruett at first to end the game.

Ryan Wilkins (2-0) was credited with the win. He pitched the final 3.2 innings and did not allow a hit or a run with a walk and two strikeouts. Ryan Connolly (0-2) was the tough-luck loser. He stuck out four over 2.2 innings and allowed one hit, one run and one walk.

CCU started Alex Cunningham pitched 4.2 innings and scattered seven hits. He allowed four runs, but all were unearned. Offensively, Jake was 3-for-4 with two RBI, while May and Remillard were each 2-for-4.

Coastal Carolina remains at home to host Furman on Tuesday and Wednesday. Both games are set to begin at 4 pm at Pelicans Ballpark.
