Chants take doubleheader, reach Sun Belt title game

The Chanticleers scored nine runs over the first three innings to complete the doubleheader sweep over the No. 10-seeded ULM Warhawks on Saturday, defeating ULM 10-6 in the nightcap at Springs Brooks Stadium. With the win, Coastal Carolina moves on to the 2019 Sun Belt Baseball Championship title game on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

With their 10 runs in Saturday night’s win, Coastal has now scored a total of 71 runs in this year’s Sun Belt Championship Tournament blowing by the previous record of 61 runs set by FIU back in 2010’s conference tournament.

Parker Chavers’ home run in the first inning was the 15th long ball of the tournament for the Chants which is tied with the 2010 Troy team for the most by a single team in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

With the win, the Chants improved to 34-24-1 overall and 11-0 all-time versus ULM.

Leading the way for the Chants in game two of the day was Cory Wood (3-for-4, 2 2B, BB, 3 RBIs, run) with a game-high three base hits, while four other players in Jake Wright (2-for-5, run), Kyle Skeels (2-for-4, 2 RBIs, 2 runs), Chavers (2-for-3, HR, BB, 2 RBIs, 2 runs) and Mike Koenig (2-for-2, 2 BB, RBI, run) all had two base hits.

The Warhawks had eight base hits on the night with six of those coming from the top four hitters in the lineup while all six runs were scored on three two-run home runs highlighted by two dingers from third baseman Chad Bell (2-for-4, 2 HR, 4 RBIs, 2 runs).

Coastal’s Nick Parker (1-1) picked up the win, as the freshman allowed just two runs on three hits, one walk and four strikeouts over 4.0-complete innings.

The hot-hitting Chants carried over their momentum from their 26-10 win in game one into game two, as Coastal led off the bottom of the first inning with a single from Wood which was followed two batters later by a base hit off the bat of Wright to put runners on the corners with one out.

First pitch for Sunday’s championship game is set for 1 p.m. at Springs Brooks Stadium.
