Chants stave off elimination with solid start by Beckwith

ccubase-beckwithAndrew Beckwith, making his second career start in as many appearances, produced another outstanding performance to lead second seed and 25th ranked Coastal Carolina to a 4-1 victory versus fourth seed Texas Southern Saturday afternoon in the first elimination game of the NCAA College Station Regional, played at Texas A&M’s Blue Bell Park.

Coastal Carolina will now face Texas A&M on Sunday at 1 pm (ET).

Beckwith, who now has 56 appearances in his two years at Coastal, scattered seven hits over a career-high 8.1 innings. He allowed one run in the ninth before exiting the contest to a standing ovation. The sophomore walked one versus Texas Southern and struck out five, which marks his second-best, single-game total in his career. (Beckwith struck out seven in a loss versus Radford on April 7 in 4.0 innings this season.) In his last outing, the Blythewood native led CCU to a 9-3 win in the Big South semifinal versus High Point as he pitched a then career-high 8.0 innings.

Chanticleer shortstop Michael Paez broke the scoreless tie in the top of the third inning as he hit a two-out home run over the left field wall for his eighth round-tripper of the year.

In the fourth, the Chanticleers exploded for three runs to take a 4-0 lead. Zach Remillard and Tyler Chadwick started the frame with back-to-back doubles, the second being an RBI for Chadwick. Jack Curtis then plated Chadwick with an RBI single to right-center field. Anthony Marks capped the scoring in the frame with an RBI single to left field.

Texas Southern avoided the shutout with a run in the ninth. Ryan Lazo hit a leadoff double and Christopher Scroggins walked. Robert Garza followed with an RBI single to bring home Lazo. After a ground out, Beckwith turned the game over to Bobby Holmes. The 2015 Big South Freshman of the Year got a ground out and a fly out to end the game and record his fourth save.

G.K. Young, for the second consecutive game, led CCU’s offense by going 2-for-4.

Felix Gomez (4-3) suffered the loss for the Tigers as he allowed five hits and four runs in 3.1 innings.
