Pearcey powers CCU past Warhawks in series opener

Cameron Pearcey had a career-high four RBI, thanks to a three-run home run, while Keaton Weisz and Kieton Rivers each hit two-run home runs to lead #16 Coastal Carolina to a 14-4 victory over UL Monroe in a Sun Belt Conference series opener Friday night at Springs Brooks Stadium.

Weisz and Rivers each finished with two hits and three RBI, while Seth Lancaster added two hits and he was one of four Chanticleers to score twice. Overall, eight CCU starters had at least one hit and eight CCU starters scored at least one run.

Coastal Carolina improves to 29-14 overall, 15-4 in the Sun Belt, while ULM falls to 18-23, 7-12. Game two of the series is set for Saturday at 2 pm. The series finale is set for Sunday at 11 am.

Zack Hopeck (4-3) earned the win. He allowed seven hits and four runs, including two double and two runs in the first inning. He settled down and allowed just two hits over his next three innings. In the fifth, he once again allowed two hits to start the frame that led to ULM’s other two runs. However, Hopeck only walked one and struck out five.

Davie Inman (three innings) and Patrick Orlando (one inning) combined to pitch four scoreless, hitless innings while allowing no walks and getting one strikeout.
