There’s no tying in baseball: Chants, Cajuns call it a day

ccubase-19fieldCoastal Carolina and Louisiana split the first two games of the weekend series and could not decide the winner of the rubber match as the 26th-ranked Chanticleers and 20th-ranked Ragin’ Cajuns tied 7-7 after nine innings Sunday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium.

The teams, tied after eight innings, both scored two runs in the ninth, but a travel curfew forced the game to end. (Prior to the game, it was determined no inning would start after 2 pm.)

Coastal (20-11-1 overall, 8-3-1 Sun Belt) records its first tie since 1983, its first in year 22 under head coach Gary Gilmore – and just the second in program history. Louisiana (18-13-1, 7-4-1) registers just their second tie in this the 23rd year of head coach Tony Robicheaux’s tenure at UL.

Down 5-0 after three innings, Louisiana scored a run in the fourth, two in the fifth and two in the eighth to knot the game at 5-5.

The ninth inning began just four minutes before the curfew deadline of 2 pm, which allowed the teams to play out what proved to be the final frame.

The Ragin’ Cajuns scored a quick run to start the ninth inning as Brad Antchak hit a leadoff double, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Ishmael Edwards and scored on an RBI single by Brenn Conrad. Joe Robbins moved Edwards and Conrad up to third and second, respectively, on a sacrifice bunt. The played key as a wild pitch on an attempted intentional walk allowed Edwards to score to put UL up 7-5.

Undaunted, Coastal, which scored for runs in the ninth to win 9-8 Saturday, got a leadoff double from Billy Cooke. Two batters later, Jordan Gore singled and a walk to Kevin Woodall Jr., loaded the bases with one out. Peyton Isaacson lined a single to center to drive in Cooke while a misplay in the outfield allowed Gore to score and tie the game. With runners on first and second, Dalton Ewing had a good at bat, facing nine pitches and just missing a potential game-winning hit down the left field line that hooked just foul. Ewing gathered himself before hitting a line drive to third. Robbins snagged the hot shot and was able to turn a double play at second to end the contest.

Cooke (3-for-4 with a HR) and Gore (3-for-4 with two doubles) paced the Chanticleer offense. Woodall was 1-for-1, hitting a three-run home run, with four walks. Keiton Rivers added two hits.
