Chants split doubleheader, drop series to High Point

ccubase-herbCoastal Carolina claimed  a 1-0 victory in game one of a Saturday doubleheader at High Point before dropping game two, 11-8 at Willard Stadium.

In game one, the Chanticleers (9-10, 1-2 Big South) avoided bases loaded jams in the eighth and ninth innings to hang on for a 1-0 win over the Panthers (12-7, 2-1 Big South).

In the eighth with two outs, High Point’s Chris Clare singled. Tyler Herb looked to get out of the inning by inducing a ground ball but an error on the play put runners on first and second. CCU went to freshman Chase Adkins, who also got a ground ball, but Clare beat the play at third to load the bases. Closer Tyler Poole entered and got Kyle Brandenburg to line out to right field to end the inning.

In the ninth, High Point’s Josh Greene hit a leadoff single, which was the first hit Poole had allowed in 7.2 innings. Josh Spano laid down a sacrifice bunt, but a throwing error put runners on first and second. Coastal elected to intentionally walk Tim Mnasfield to load the bases.
Spencer Angelis hit a line drive to right field but Colin Hering made the play for the first out. Cody Manzella hit a ground ball to first and Richard Carter threw out Greene at home for the second out. Clare’s fly ball to right field was tracked down by Hering to end the game.

Poole earned his fifth save in as many opportunities. He pitched 1.1 innings, allowing a hit and the intentional walk. Herb gutted it out for 7.2 innings to improve to 2-3 this season. The senior scattered eight hits with three walks and a season-high six strikeouts.

Coastal threatened in each of the first four innings before breaking through with a run in the top of fifth inning. John McNulty lined a leadoff double down the left field line and took third on Richard Carter’s sacrifice bunt. Michael Paez followed with an RBI ground out to give Coastal a 1-0 lead.

After running themselves out of the third inning by being retired at third for the final out, the Panthers also had a base running miscue in the fifth. With one on and two out, Tim Mansfield walked on a pitch that got by Coastal’s McNulty. Spano tried to score from second on the wild pitch, but was thrown out at home.

Coastal’s strong pitching was matched by High Point as McNulty’s double in the fifth was CCU’s last hit of the game and just two Chants – Paez walking in the eighth and Hering walking in the ninth – reached base in the final four innings.

Mike Krumm (3-2) was the tough-luck loser, allowing five hits and the lone run over his seven innings.

In game two, High Point sent 10 men to the plate and scored six runs.

The Chants got one of those runs back in the top of the second. Anthony Marks singled, Nick Oberg walked and Tyler Chadwick hit an RBI single. However, Coastal committed two errors in the home half of the second and the Panthers scored three runs to take a 9-1 lead.

Coastal once again answered as Zach Remillard blasted a three-run home run in the top of the third to cut the deficit to five, 9-4. The Panthers pushed their lead back to six, 10-4, thanks to an RBI double by Spencer Angelis. HPU looked to make it a seven-run game, but Anthony Marks threw out a runner at the plate for the third out of the frame.

In the sixth inning, Coastal loaded the bases and scored once thanks to an RBI single by Chadwick to make the score 10-5.

After being shutout for 3.2 innings, High Point scored once in the bottom of the seventh as Spano doubled and scored on a double by Angelis to put the Panthers up 11-5.

The Chants scored three runs in the top of the eighth to make the score 11-8. With the bases loaded, Tyler Herb reached on a fielder’s choice, scoring one, and Connor Owings followed with a two-run single.

Coastal put two on base in the ninth, but could not take advantage to fall 11-8.

Owing was 3-of-5 in game two, while Chadwick was 3-for-4. Cole Schaefer (3-1) suffered the loss.

Coastal Carolina will return to action Tuesday, hosting UNC Wilmington at 6 pm.
