Owings, Remillard combine for four HRs to lift Coastal

ccubase-owings vs pitt 3 (2)Connor Owings and Zach Remillard each hit two-run home runs to lead #18 Coastal Carolina to an 8-3 victory versus High Point (17-16, 6-5) Sunday evening at Wiliard Stadium. The Chanticleers (25-9, 9-2) will look for the series sweep in the three-game finale on Monday, which is set to begin at 1 pm.

Owings was 2-for-4, adding a double and two runs scored, while Remillard was 1-for-4 with three RBI. For the second consecutive game, Anthony Marks was 3-for-5 to lead a Chanticleer offense that saw eight players get at least one hit.

Austin Kerr (7-0) picked up the win for Coastal. The senior allowed six hits and three runs in 5.2 innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter. Mike Morrison pitched 2.2 scoreless and hitless innings, striking out six with no walks. Brock Hunter logged the final two outs to close out the contest.

Coastal pushed two runs across the plate in the top of the first. Owings lined a double down the right field line and, after a Michael Paez walk, scored on an RBI single by G.K. Young. Paez advanced to third on Young’s single and later scored on a passed ball.

In the second inning, Casey Schroeder drew a one-out walk and moved up to second on Josh Crump ground out. Marks followed with an RBI single up the middle. Owings then crushed a two-run home run to right field to give CCU a 5-0 lead. The blast was the fifth of the year for Owings.

The Panthers broke through with two runs in the home half of the fourth inning. Josh Spano hit a leadoff single and Carson Jackson singled. Josh Greene plated Spano with a single up the middle, moving Jackson to third. Brady Williamson followed with an RBI ground out.

Coastal got those two runs back in the top of the fifth. After a two-out walk to Tyler Chadwick, Remillard hit a two-run home run over the left field fence. Remillard now has four round-trippers this season.

High Point trimmed its deficit to 7-3 in the sixth. With one out, Spencer Angelis singled and Jackson doubled to put runners on second and third. Greene followed with a sacrifice fly. Coastal then turned to Morrison, who promptly struck out pinch hitter Cody Manzella to limit the damage.

Once again, the Chants answered the Panthers. Paez and David Parrett singled before Chadwick walked to load the bases with one out. Remillard drove in Paez with a sacrifice fly to deep right field as CCU regained a five-run advantage, 8-3.

Cas Silber (3-2) suffered the loss, allowing seven hits and seven runs (six earned) with four walks and five strikeouts.
