Chants remain ranked 21st; Chadwick nets two awards

ccubase-Tyler Chadwick vs OSU2Coastal Carolina senior first baseman Tyler Chadwick (Waxhaw, N.C./Marvin Ridge HS) was named the Big South Baseball Player of the Week, the league announced today. Also, the Chanticleers, which have an RPI of 37 and strength of schedule of 19, held on to their #21 national ranking in the PerfectGame.org top 25.

Chadwick was also named National Hitter of the Week, while Arizona State sophomore right-hander Ryan Hingst was named National Pitcher of the Week. The NCBWA Board reviews candidates from each Division I Conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season.

Coastal Carolina will return to action this Wednesday and host region rival The Citadel. First pitch is set for 6 pm at Springs Brooks Stadium. The Chants will remain on campus to host Gardner-Webb this weekend.

Chadwick batted .583 (7-for-12) for the week, but posted a .700 (7-for-10) in the three-game sweep versus Stetson with 12 RBI, six runs scored, three home runs and a 1.333 slugging percentage. Overall, he raised his batting average 72 points to .308 for the season.

Even though he was 0-for-2 coming off the bench in the loss at the College of Charleston, Chadwick reached base twice each time on a pair of Cougar errors. In the Thursday win over Stetson, Chadwick was 3-for-4 with four RBI and a home run. He gave CCU a 4-0 lead in the first inning with a three-run home run and hit an RBI single in the fifth. On Friday, he was 2-for-3 – both hits being home runs – with six RBI. In the first inning, Chadwick gave CCU a 4-0 lead with a two-run home run. Then, in the fourth inning, he smacked a grand slam to straight away center field to be the first Chanticleer to clear the 20-foot batter’s eye. Chadwick concluded the series by going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI singles.

In the first 10 games, Coastal was just 5-5 as Chadwick was batting just .190. However, over the last 15 games, Coastal has won 11 contests as Chadwick has posted a .390 batting average. Specifically, he is batting .455 with 18 RBI in his last seven games.

Chadwick is not the only Chanticleer to be playing well of late. Zach Remillard is now batting .400 for the season thanks to a .424 batting average over the last 17 games, which he has had hitting streaks of nine and seven games. Billy Cooke has a seven-game hitting streak and is batting .400 over the span while Connor Owings is batting .411 with 11 walks over his last 11 contests.

On the mound, Alex Cunningham is 4-0 over CCU’s last 11 wins with a 2.42 ERA with an opponent batting average of just .192. Relief pitcher Mike Morrison has not allowed a run in his last eight appearances and, over his last five outings, has retired 37 of the 44 batters he has faced with 22 strikeouts.
