Chants hammer six homers in historic win over Hatters

ccubase-37trotCoastal Carolina tied a school record with six home runs in one game, including two each from Tyler Chadwick and Michael Paez, to claim a 17-5 victory over Stetson Friday afternoon at Spring Brooks Stadium. Paez additionally became the first Chanticleer to hit two home runs in one inning to tie an NCAA record held by many.

Three of CCU’s six home runs came in an eight-run fourth inning thanks to a grand slam by Chadwick sandwiched between a solo shot and three-run homer by Paez.

Amazingly, Stetson pitchers had only surrendered six home runs on the season prior to the CCU series but have allowed eight in two games – two Thursday and six today. (Coastal also hit six home runs in a game versus Presbyterian in 2010, Gardner-Webb in 2009 and Radford in 2009.)

Chadwick, who has now hit home runs in the first inning on consecutive days, was 2-for-3 and finished with six RBI as he hit a two-run home run in the first and hit a grand slam in the fourth to become the first Chanticleer to clear the 20-foot batter’s eye in straight away center field. (Ironically, the first player to ever clear the batter’s eye at Springs Brooks Stadium was Georgia Tech’s A.J. Murray, also a grand slam, in a walk-off win versus Florida International on Feb. 21, 2015.)

Paez was 3-for-4 with four RBI. His first home run, three at bats prior to Chadwick’s blast over the batter’s eye, had the distance to clear the batter’s eye, but was just to the left. His second blast was deep to left field, leaving the confines of Springs Brooks Stadium.

G.K. Young hit his fifth home run of the season and finished the game going 3-for-5 with three RBI, while Billy Cooke hit his first career homer to round out the six homers for the day.

In the fourth, Paez started the inning and closed the inning with home runs to put CCU up 15-2. First, the junior hit a solo home run to center. Coastal then loaded the bases after a single, double and walk to set the stage for Chadwick’s grand slam. New Stetson pitcher Joey Gonzalez recorded two quick outs before hitting David Parrett and allowing a Marks single. Then, with the count full, Paez launched a three-run home run to left field.

Cooke hit a leadoff home run in the sixth and Kevin Woodall Jr. capped CCU’s scoring with an RBI single in the seventh.

Alex Cunningham (4-1) won his fourth straight (wins in relief versus Wake Forest and UNC Greensboro as well as win in starts at Longwood and versus Stetson) and has earned the win in four of CCU’s last nine wins as the Chants have gone 9-3 over the span. Friday, Cunningham scattered six hits and allowed three runs (two earned) with a walk and four strikeouts in seven innings.
