Wolverines pull away late; Chants face Spartans next

ccubase-gk young vs pitt 2 (2)Coastal Carolina was down one, 4-3, with the bases loaded in the sixth inning, but Bryan Pall induced an inning-ending ground out and Michigan scored six runs in the next two innings to take a 10-4 decision from the Chanticleers (9-5) Saturday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium as part of the Coastal Carolina Invitational.

Carmen Benedetti led the Wolverines (10-5 and winners of eight straight) by going 3-for-5 with four RBI.

Michigan claimed an early 1-0 lead. Jacob Croneworth drew a leadoff walk and took second on a bunt single by Jake Bivens. Two batters later, Benedetti lined an RBI single through the right side of the infield to bring home Croneworth.

The Wolverines pushed their lead to 4-0 in the third inning. Eric Jacobson and Croneworth opened the frame with singles. Travis Maezes drove in Jacobsen with an RBI single and Benedetti followed with a two-run double.

The Chants got on the board with a run in the fourth. Tyler Chadwick singled and Zach Remillard walked. G.K. Young reached on an error, which allowed Chadwick to score from second base.

Coastal trimmed its deficit to one, 4-3, with two runs in the fifth. Anthony Marks reached on a three-base error and scored on a Connor Owings’ double. Owings advanced to third on a passed ball and scored on a safety squeeze bunt by Chadwick.

Then, in the sixth, Coastal loaded the bases with two outs as David Parrett and Marks singled while Al Molina walked. However, Pall escaped by getting a ground out and that is as close as the Chants would get.

Coastal was cruising on defense in the middle innings while cutting its deficit thanks to relief pitcher Austin Kerr. The senior retired the first eight batters he faced before an error opened the floodgates in the seventh for Michigan. With one out in the seventh, Kerr struck out Croneworth for his fifth punch out of the game, but Croneworth reached first base on a throwing error. After that, Bivens singled, Maezes doubled and Benedetti singled to give the Wolverines an 8-3 lead.

The Wolverines added two runs in the top of the eighth to provide the 10-4 final. After a pair of walks to start the inning, Cody Bruder hit a two-out, two-run single.

Brett Adcock (2-1) was credited with the win. He pitched 5.2 innings and allowed three hits and three runs (all unearned) with three walks and seven strikeouts. Chase Adkins (1-3) suffered the loss as he allowed nine hits and four runs (three earned) in 3.2 innings.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Sunday by hosting Michigan State at 1 pm.
