Chants suffer first Sun Belt Conference loss to Trojans

No. 16 Coastal Carolina outhit the Troy Trojans 16-12 for the contest, yet saw a six-run third inning by the visiting Trojans highlighted by two home runs prove to be the difference in a 10-8 loss on Sunday afternoon in the series finale at Springs Brooks Stadium.

Coastal took the first two games of the series with wins on Friday and Saturday to record its fourth-straight Sun Belt Conference series win dating back to last season. The Chants are now 18-5-1 overall and 5-1 in Sun Belt play.

Offensively, the Chants had eight different players record a hit on the day with six of those players registering multiple hits for the game. However, the Chants stranded 12 runners on base over the nine-inning contest and committed four errors in the field.

Senior outfielder Kieton Rivers (3-for-4, 3B, 2B, BB, RBI, 2 runs) and shortstop Scott McKeon (3-for-5, 2B, run) each had three hits apiece, while outfielder Jake Wright (2-for-5, 2 RBIs), designated hitter Parker Chavers (2-for-5, 2 runs), infielder Nick Lucky (2-for-3, 2 RBIs, 2 runs) and fellow outfielder Cameron Pearcey (2-for-4, RBI) all had two hits each in the loss.

Troy totaled 12 base hits on the day highlighted by a grand slam from center fielder Logan Cerny (1-for-5, GS, 4 RBIs, 2 runs, SB) and a two-run home run from shortstop Drew Frederic (3-for-4, HR, 2 BB, 2 RBIs, 2 runs), both of which came in the six-run third inning.

CCU freshman Garrett McDaniels (0-1) suffered the first loss of his young career, as the left-handed pitcher had just one bad inning. He was roughed up for six runs, all in the third inning, on seven hits, one walk and two strikeouts over 3.0 innings.

The loss snapped the Chants’ overall winning streak at five and CCU’s winning streak over the Trojans at five-straight games.

Coastal (18-5-1) will play the first of back-to-back midweek contests versus UNCW (14-10) on Tuesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. in Wilmington, N.C.
