CCU wraps up fall drills with Chanticleer World Series

The Coastal Carolina baseball teamed wrapped up its fall practice season Sunday with the annual Chanticleer World Series at Pelicans Park in Myrtle Beach.

“I have been very pleased overall with our progress this fall. I feel we have much better depth at this point,” said CCU baseball coach Gary Gilmore. “Position-by-position, man-to-man, we are better off. I know we are very young, but I like this group. Other than the 2010 team, I don’t know if I have been around a group that loves to come to the ballpark like this team does. They compete and work well together.”

After suffering a double-header sweep Friday and starting Sunday in a 25-point deficit, the Teal team needed everything to go its way, which it did, to defeat the Black team, 212-199, in the series.

The point system included 10 points for a win and various points throughout the game for tangible and intangible parts of the game. For instance, points were won or lost for getting off the field in a timely manner between innings, properly executing plays, having 1-2-3 inning and “dugout energy” to name a few.

While the Teal won, 9-2, the road to victory started during the pre-game infield/outfield warm-ups, where miscues cost the Black four points for a 21-point lead as the first pitch was delivered.

The Teal team was led by Jake Kane (3-for-5 with 3 RB); Alex Buccilli (2-for-2 with 2 RBI); and Colin Hering (2-for-3 with 2 RBI). Freshman Zach Remilard (Cohoes, N.Y./La Salle Institute) and sophomore Dylan Harvey (Midlothian, Va./James River HS/Patrick Henry CC) each added two hits and two runs scored. Ryan Connolly drew the start for the Teal, pitching three scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and struck out two. Freshman Vince Apicella (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern HS) was credited with the win. He pitched 2.1 innings, allowing two hits and one run with a strikeout. Mike Morrison (Leesville, S.C./Gilbert HS) allowed one run in 0.1 innings, while Austin Kerr, Patrick Corbett and Tom Durkin (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrews HS/Lewis Univ.) combined to work the final 3.1 innings, scattering four hits and striking out three.

The Teal squad plated two in the bottom of the first. Harvey started things as he was hit by a pitch and Luke Willis followed with a hit-and-run single. After a strikeout, Buccilli delivered an RBI single to right, once again putting runners on the corners. Hering, a junior from Bellevue, La./Newport HS/Bellevue College, singled up the middle to drive in Willis.

In the second, Remillard sparked a four-run frame with a bloop single to center. Harvey followed with a single and Willis put runners on second and third with a sacrifice bunt. Kane brought the two home with a two-run double to center. For the second time in as many innings, Buccilli and Hering came through with RBI singles, putting the Teal up 6-0.

The Teal added one in the fourth, as Brian Pruett doubled and eventually scored on Greg Brodzinski’s sacrifice fly, and two more in the fifth for its nine runs. In the fifth, Remillard singled, moved to second on a ground out and scored on Kane’s RBI single. Willis, who had walked, moved to second on Kane’s single, stole third and scored his team’s ninth and final run on a wild pitch.

The Black squad got on the scoreboard in the sixth. Jacob May had a one-out double and scored on a Chris Suseck single. Will Remillard, who walked, took second on Suseck’s single, third on Connor Owings single and scored on Justin Creel’s RBI walk.

May finished the game by going 2-for-5 with a double and a triple. Owings (Leesville, S.C./Gilbert HS) was 3-for-4. The pair combined for five of the Black team’s nine hits.

While the Teal raced out to a nine-run lead, the Black team bullpen pitched well. Freshman Alex Ministeri (Merrimack, Mass./Pentucket HS) pitched 1.2 scoreless and Brock Hunter (McLean, Va./McLean HS) struck out one in his one inning.

Tyler Poole, who missed last season with injury and is just concentrating on baseball this season, struck out the side in his one inning, while freshmen Brady Arenson (Glenview, Ill./New Trier HS) and Seth Lamando (Hopewell Junction, N.Y./Ketcham HS) combined to work a scoreless eighth.

Aaron Burke suffered the loss. Despite striking out the side in the first, he allowed two runs, and he allowed four runs in the second. Overall, he allowed seven hits over his 1.1 innings.
