Coastal puts together late rally but falls short to Duke

ccubase-gkyoungDown seven runs through seven innings, Coastal Carolina (4-7) scored five runs in the eighth and brought the winning run to the plate in the ninth before Duke’s Robert Huber got a strikeout, fly out and pop out to give the Blue Devils  a 7-5 victory in the final game of the Caravelle Resort Tournament at Pelicans Ballpark.

Duke got on the scoreboard first, scoring once in the top of the second. Ryan Dietrich doubled, took third on a ground out and, with two outs, scored on an infield single by Kenny Koplove. The Blue Devils (7-4) added three run in the third. After back-to-back singles, Mike Rosenfeld cleared the bases with a three-run home run to left field.

Duke added three runs in the fourth inning to make the score 7-0. Koplove and Mark Lumpa singled and Aaron Cohen walked to start the frame. A balk allowed Koplove to score and Grant McCabe followed with a two-run single.

After being shutout and getting just three hits off Duke starter James Marvel through seven innings, Coastal’s offense came to life off the Blue Devil bullpen in the eighth, getting four hits and five runs in the frame. The Chants loaded the bases with no outs thanks to singles by Richard Carter, who came off the bench to go 2-for-3, and Nick Oberg followed by a Jake Jane walk. Connor Owings plated Carter with an RBI fielder’s choice. A G.K. Young walk loaded the bases again and Zach Remillard brought the three home with a three-run double. An Anthony Marks single put runners on the corners and Remillard later scored on a wild pitch.

In the ninth, Carter and pinch hitter Michael Paez had leadoff singles but were stranded after Huber retired the next three batters.

Marvel (2-1) picked up the win, striking out six and walking one in his seven innings. Dalton Moats (0-2) took the loss, allowing eight hits and six runs in three-plus innings. Andrew Beckwith, Tom Durkin Chad Adkins and Austin Kerr kept the Chants in the game by combining to pitch the final five innings without allowing a run.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Tuesday at The Citadel. First pitch is set for 6 pm at Riley Park. The Chanticleers will return home this weekend (Mar. 7-9) to host the Chanticleer Classic.
