CCU’s May has perfect day at plate to beat Wolverines

Jacob May was 3-for-3 and scored twice while Luke Willis continued his hot play to lead Coastal Carolina (9-10) to a 6-2 win over Michigan (8-9) Saturday afternoon at Pelicans Ballpark in Myrtle Beach.

In addition to May and Willis, who was 2-for-3 with an RBI and run scored, Coastal got a boost from the Remillard brothers. Will, a sophomore catcher, delivered a key two-run double that proved to be the game winning runs, while Zach, a freshman third baseman, was 2-for-3 with an RBI and run scored.

While CCU pitching held Michigan to six hits, the Chants did walk eight, but worked out of trouble most of the game. Ben Smith (2-1) earned the win. The sophomore allowed three hits over five scoreless innings with four walks and four strikeouts. Brian Corbett pitched two hitless innings with three strikeouts and Brock Hunter and Mike Morrison combined for an inning’s work, allowing one hit and one walk.

In the first two innings, Coastal put a runner on third with one out, but only scored once. In the first, May hit a triple and tried to score on a fly ball, but was gunned down at the plate by Michigan centerfielder Michael O’Neil. In the second, Coastal loaded the bases with singles by Willis and Tyler Chadwick and a Justin Creel walk. Z. Remillard was able to drive in Willis with a sacrifice fly to right-center field.

Coastal added three runs in the third for a 4-0 lead. May laid down a bunt single and Alex Buccilli followed with an infield single. W. Remillard brought the two home with a double down the left field line. Willis put runners on the corners with a single to left and Chadwick followed with a sacrifice fly.

The Chants tallied a single run in the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth, May was hit by a pitch to start the inning and would eventually score on Willis’ sacrifice fly. In the sixth, Z. Remillard singled to start the home half and scored on May’s second bunt single of the day.

Michigan avoided the shutout with two runs in the ninth. Jack Sexton had a leadoff double and Zach Zott and Zach Johnson loaded the bases with walks. With two outs, Travis Maezes was hit by a pitch to force in a run and Jacob Cronenworth followed with an RBI infield single to provide the 6-2 final.

Evan Hill (2-1) suffered the loss. The freshman pitched 4.1 innings, allowing nine hits and five runs with one walk. Cronenworth, Kyle Jusick and Jack Sexton each had two hits for the Wolverines to account for their six hits.

The game was the second of the day in the Chanticleer Classis with Akron defeating Quinnipiac 9-4 in the morning session. The final day of the Chanticleer Classic has Akron facing Michigan Sunday at 11 am, following by Coastal hosting Akron at 3 pm.
