Coastal shuts out Winthrop for 11th consecutive victory

ccubase-kerrpitchNine Chanticleer batters combined for 15 hits while Austin Kerr and Bobby Holmes combined for the Chants’ third shutout of the season in a 6-0 victory Saturday afternoon versus Winthrop at Springs Brooks Stadium.

Coastal Carolina, winners of 11 straight, improve to 20-6 overall and 5-0 in the Big South Conference, while Winthrop drops to 17-10, 1-4. Prior to the game, several dignitaries were on hand as Coastal Carolina University held a formal dedication ceremony for both the baseball and softball complex.

Anthony Marks paced the Chanticleer offensive attack with three infield singles, while Michael Paez, Connor Owings, Zach Remillard and Tyler Chadwick each contributed two hits.

On the mound, Kerr (5-0) set the tone early by striking out four of the first five batters he faced. He only faced four batters over the minimum in his 6.2 innings as the Eagles managed just three hits and Kerr walked one. Despite two batters reaching on errors, Coastal turned a double play and a Winthrop runner was caught stealing to limit the plate appearances.

Bobby Holmes closed out the game by retiring seven of the 10 batters he faced. The freshman had a streak of 14 consecutive batters retired after hitting a batter in the eighth inning. Holmes would allow a single and a walk in the ninth inning. He struck out the first batter he faced – which ended the seventh inning – and struck out the last batter he faced – which ended the game.

Coastal Carolina and Winthrop will conclude their three-game series on Sunday. First pitch at Springs Brooks Stadium is set for 2 pm.
