Herb, offense help Chants get over hump vs. Camels

ccubase-herbeagleNo. 6 seed Coastal Carolina scored four runs in the third and five runs in the eighth to upset No. 3 seed Campbell, 9-2,  in the first round of the 2014 Big South Baseball Championship at the Winthrop Ballpark.

With the win, the Chanticleers improve to 24-31 and advance to the second round against No. 2 Winthrop at 9:30 a.m. on May 21. Campbell falls to 35-19.

“We played with tremendous intensity today,” CCU coiach Gary Gilmore said. “There was a focus today that we have been looking for all season.  Tyler Herb was good on the mound and Connor Owings got some big hits and that is what we needed today.  Campbell is a good team and they’ll continue battle through the tournament.”

Campbell pushed one runner across in the game’s opening inning to take the early 1-0 lead.  With one out, Steven Leonard walked and moved to third on a single by Matt Nadolski.  Matt Parrish plated Leonard with a ground ball to first.

Coastal Carolina answered back in the top of the third as it scored four runs to take the 4-1 lead.  Reid Moman was hit by a pitch and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Steven Whitaker.  Anthony Marks drew a walk to put runners on first and second.  Michael Paez brought Moman around with a single through the left side.  Conor Owings followed with a single to score Marks, moving Paez to third on the throw.  After Owings stole second, Jake Kane hit in to a RBI ground out to score Paez and move Owings to third.  Tyler Chadwick plated Owings with a ground ball back through the middle.

The Camels cut the lead to 4-2 as they scored run in the bottom of the third.  With two out, Nadolski singled and advanced to second on a ground ball.  A walk by Parrish put runners on first and second.  Will Albertson singled up the middle to bring Nadolski across.

The Teal and Bronze added five runs in the top half of the eighth to push the lead to 9-2.  Marks led the inning off with a single and moved up to second on a sacrifice by bunt by Paez.  Owings followed with a single through the left side.  An error by the Campbell left fielder in fielding the ball allowed Marks to score and Paez to move up to second.  Jake Kane drew a walk.  Chadwick followed with a double off the right field wall to bring Paez home and Kane to third.  A sacrifice fly by G.K. Young lifted a sacrifice fly to deep left field that was misplayed to score Kane.  Young moved to second and Chadwick to third on the error.  Pinch hitter Colin Herring cleared the bases with a chopper through the left side.

Herb pitched eight innings with five strikeouts to pick up the win and improve to 7-6 on the year.  Heath Bowers took the loss for the Camels and falls to 9-3on year.

Owings paced the Coastal Carolina offense with three hits, while Nadolski led the Camels with a pair of hits.
