Chants take fourth straight with win over Wake Forest

ccubase-carterfieldCoastal Carolina erased a three-run deficit by scoring in four straight innings en route to a 7-3 victory over Wake Forest Tuesday afternoon at Pelicans Ballpark.

The Chanticleers have won four straight to improve to 8-8 this season and extend their win streak to seven in the all-time series versus the Demon Deacons (11-6).

Coastal was led by Richard Carter (3-for-5) and Tyler Chadwick (3-for-4) and Seth Lamando (1-0) pitched five shutout innings to earn his first win of the season.

Lamando entered the game with CCU trailing by one, 3-2. He only allowed one hit with no walks and five strikeouts. He retired the first five batters faced until allowing his one single. The sophomore then retired seven straight until hitting the leadoff batter in the ninth inning. Lamando regrouped to record two strikeouts and get a pop out to end the game.

Wake Forest raced out to a three-run lead in the top of the third. Garrett Kelly drew a leadoff walk and Evan Stephens followed with a bunt single. Grant Shambley laid down a sacrifice bunt but a CCU error would load the bases. Charlie Morgan plated the first run with an RBI ground out. Matt Conway and Will Craig each welcomed new CCU pitcher Chase Adkins with an RBI singles before the Chanticleers got out of the inning by turning a double play.

The Chanticleers chipped away at the deficit, scoring once in the third, fourth and fifth innings to tie the game at 3-3. In the third, Chadwick singled and advanced to third after a pair of wild pitches. Carter then singled to first base, driving in Chadwick on the play. In the fourth, Zach Remillard hit a leadoff double and scored on Colin Hering’s RBI single.

Coastal took the lead with three runs in the sixth. With one out, Reid Moman walked. Two batters later, Chadwick hit a fly ball to right field, which was dropped for what should have been the third out allowing Moman to score. Carter followed with an RBI single. The Deacons threw home to try and get Chadwick at the plate on the play, allowing Carter to try for second base. However, the throw to try and get Carter at second was offline and Carter was able to score.

In the eighth, Coastal added an insurance run. Moman singled, stole second and scored on Nick Oberg’s RBI single to provide the 7-3 final.

Parker Dunshee (0-1) took the loss, allowing three hits and four runs (one earned) in 2.1 innings.

Coastal Carolina will hit the road for the first time in 2014 and open Big South play with a three-game series at High Point this weekend (March 14-16). Games are at 6 pm Friday, 4 pm Saturday and 1 pm Sunday.
