Chants top Jags in series, visit Wolfpack Wednesday

No. 19 Coastal Carolina baseball got a strong start on the mound from junior pitcher Anthony Veneziano and scored a season-high eight runs in one inning to rout South Alabama 14-5 on Sunday afternoon at Stanky Field in Mobile, Ala.

The Sun Belt series win is the third of the season for the Chants. CCU has now won 19-of-24 conference series matchups since joining the Sun Belt Conference in 2017.

With Coastal’s eight-run sixth and four-run seventh, the Chants have now recorded 19 “big innings” on the season and are 13-1-1 in games in which they score four runs or more in an inning in the contest.

Veneziano (4-1) struck out eight batters over 5.1 innings on the mound to earn the win. The tall-lefty allowed just two runs on two hits and four walks on the day.

USA starter Caleb Yarborough (2-4) was roughed up for seven runs, three of which were earned, on six hits, two walks and five strikeouts over 5.2 innings in the loss.

The Chants’ offense recorded 14 runs on 14 base hits, as 10 different players registered a hit in the win. With their three home runs in the contest, the Chants are now 11-2 on the season when hitting two or more long balls in a game. Coastal hit three home runs in game one, two in game two and three more home runs on Sunday for a total of eight home runs over the weekend.

Cameron Pearcey (3-for-4, HR, BB, RBI, 2 runs, SB), Zach Biermann (1-for-4, HR, SF, 2 RBIs, run) and Mike Koenig (2-for-3, HR, 2B, BB, SF, 3 RBIs, 2 runs) each had a home run on the day, while Scott McKeon (1-for-4, BB, 2 RBIs, run), Jake Wright (2-for-6, 2 RBIs) and Kyle Skeels (1-for-4, 2B, SF, 2 RBIs, run) all had two RBIs apiece in the road win.

The Chants pitching staff combined to strike out 12 batters compared to just four walks.

Coastal (22-11-1, 8-4 Sun Belt) will continue its road trip at nationally-ranked NC State (29-4) on Wednesday. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. in Raleigh, N.C.
