Coastal sweeps twinbill for three-game winning streak

ccubase-helmetfiveCoastal Carolina swept a mixed doubleheader on Sunday, taking a 12-4 decision from Illinois in game one and a 7-4 victory versus UNC Greensboro in game two at Springs Brooks Stadium.

The Chanticleers (10-7) have won a season-best three straight games and claimed wins in four of their last five. In the doubleheader Sunday, Connor Owings hit a home run in each contest, while Zach Remillard contributed two doubles and a home run, giving him seven round-trippers for the season.

In game two on Sunday, Coastal dug its self a hole as UNC Greensboro’s first three batters reached to start the game on a walk, hit and hit batter. Cleanup hitter Collin Woody brought home Ben Spitznagel with a sacrifice fly to center. While CCU starter Jason Bilous surrendered a second run on a wild pitch, he recorded two strikeouts to limit the damage.

Coastal got one of those runs back in the home half of the first. Anthony Marks led off with an infield single. Two batters later – and as he did in game one Sunday in the win versus Illinois – Remillard hit a two-out RBI double to drive in Marks.

The Chants tied the game at 2-2 in the second. Billy Cooke walked and took second on a wild pitch. David Parrett reached on an error, allowing Cooke to score from second on the play.

Coastal doubled up the Spartans, 4-2, with two runs in the third inning. G.K. Young singled and scored on a two-run Owings home run to left field. The blast was Owings’ second on the day – hitting one to right center field in game one – and second of the season.

The Chants manufactured two runs in the fourth to go up 6-2. Cooke walked and moved to third when Seth Lancaster reached on an error. Parrett executed a safety squeeze to score Cooke. The Chants went on to load the bases after walks to Marks and Michael Paez. Young delivered sac fly to score Lancaster.

Coastal loaded the bases and pushed one run across in the bottom of the sixth. Lancaster singled while Parrett and Marks walked. With one out, Young hit a deep fly ball to center field to score Lancaster for a 7-2 lead.

The Spartans rallied for two runs in the seventh. With bases loaded and two outs, Ryne Sigmon found a hole up the middle to score two. UNCG threatened for more, but Tyler Chadwick made a nice diving play at first base to record the third out and keep the score 7-4.

Alex Cunningham picked up his second win of the week, both in relief, to improve to 2-1 on the season. The junior pitched the final six innings and allowed five hits, two runs and two walks. He tied a season high with seven strikeouts. Bilous worked the first three innings. He allowed four hits, two runs and four walks with three strikeouts.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Wednesday, March 16, with a trip to region rival UNC Wilmington. First pitch is set for 6 pm.
