Chants roll up 26 runs in historic win over Wolves

Coastal Carolina scored in its first eight innings, including a 10-run fourth, and Kevin Woodall Jr., hit two home runs with six RBI and tied a CCU record with five runs scored to defeat Arkansas State 26-14 Saturday night at Tomlinson Stadium/Kell Field.

The 30th-ranked Chanticleers improve to 14-7 overall, 2-0 in the Sun Belt while the Red Wolves drop to 8-7, 0-2. Due to the threat of rain, Sunday’s series finale will now start at 1 pm (ET).

In the high-scoring game,
• The 26 runs by CCU is its fifth-most in school history and its most since winning at Charleston Southern 29-13 on Mar. 20, 2010.
• The CCU record for runs in a game was a 36-3 win over Stony Brook on Mar. 6, 2009, followed by a 29-1 win over Voorhees on Mar. 25, 1982 and a 28-4 win over St. Mary’s on Feb. 27, 1996.
• The 26 runs by CCU is the most Arkansas State has ever allowed.
• The last time CCU had a double-digit scoring inning was also scoring 10 in the fourth versus Stony Brook in the NCAA Myrtle Beach Regional in a 25-7 win on June 6, 2010.
• The 12 walks by Chanticleer pitchers tied a CCU record (marking the fourth time it has happened).
• The 18 walks by Red Wolves pitchers set an A-State record.
• The 30 combined walks ties for the second-most in a game in NCAA history.
• Woodall tied a CCU record with five runs scored, being the fifth Chant to do so. Ironically, the last player to do so was Rico Noel in that 29-13 win at Charleston Southern in 2010.
• Lee Sponseller and Zach Biermann each scored four runs.
• It marked the second time this season (and his career) Woodall had six RBI in a game.
• Kieton Rivers had a career-high five RBI.
• Kyle Skeels was 4-for-6 with three RBI and three runs scored.
• Seth Lancaster, Biermann, Sponseller and Keaton Weisz each walked three times.

Lost in the box score is the fact that Patrick Orlando improved to 2-0, pitching 2.1 scoreless innings. He allowed two hits and two walks. Also, Trevor Damron earned his first collegiate save as he worked the final four innings. While he did allow nine hits and seven runs (six earned) with three walks, he struck out a season-high eight.
