Chants’ win streak reaches seven, Gamecocks on deck

ccubase-chauncyBilly Cooke and Connor Owings each drove in three runs to lead #21 Coastal Carolina to a 10-6 win Sunday afternoon to complete a weekend sweep versus Gardner-Webb at Springs Brooks Stadium. The Chanticleers have won seven straight and 13 of their last 15.

Coastal Carolina (20-9, 5-1 Big South) led 10-2 through seven innings, but Gardner-Webb (21-10, 2-4) made things interesting in the fifth, eighth and ninth innings. Coastal’s Andrew Beckwith (3-1) got CCU out of a bases loaded jam with no outs in the fifth, limiting the Runnin’ Bulldogs to just two runs. In the eighth, GWU scored four times to trim its deficit to four before Cole Schaefer closed out the inning with a strikeout. Then, in the ninth, GWU put a pair of runners on with two outs before Mike Morrison got a game-ending fly out to record his fourth save of the season.

Coastal Carolina got on the scoreboard first with a run in the second inning. Tyler Chadwick hit a two-out double down the right field line and scored on Cooke’s single to right field.

The Chants added four runs in the third inning for a 5-0 lead. Anthony Marks had a leadoff single, Michael Paez was hit by a pitch and G.K. Young walked to load the bases. Zach Remillard then drew an eight-pitch walk for force home Marks. Paez scored when GWU turned a double play, moving Young to third. Chadwick then walked and took second on a wild pitch. Cooke then looped a two-run single to center field.

Gardner-Webb took advantage of two walks, an error and a hit batter to score twice in the fifth to trim its deficit to three, 5-2. Paul Trick walked, Eric Jones reached on an error and Justin Kunz walked to load the bases with no outs. Mason Fox was hit by a pitch to force home Trick. Coastal turned to Beckwith out of the bullpen. He struck out the first batter he faced, but Tyler Best fisted a single to center field to bring home Jones. With the bases still loaded, Beckwith got a ground ball and, after Paez made a nice catch and throw, induced an inning-ending double play.

Coastal got those runs back in the home half of the fifth. Remillard drew a one-out walk anD Owings drilled the first pitch he saw over the City of Conway Boardwalk to give CCU a 7-2 advantage. The blast was his fourth of the season and the 17th of his career.

In the seventh, the Chants pushed three runs across the plate to lead 10-2. Young drew a leadoff walk. Remillard had a bunt single, but throwing error on the play put runners on second and third. Owings then squibbed an infield single to third, driving in Young. A second throwing error in the frame also allowed Remillard to score on the play.  The Chants would load the bases and Owings scored the team’s 10th run of the game on a wild pitch.

The Runnin’ Bulldogs put four runs on the board in the top of the eighth to trim their deficit to four, 10-6. Best hit a leadoff single to center and Danny Sullivan lined a double off the left field fence. Collin Thacker plated Best with an infield single. Coastal looked to get out of the inning by allowing just the one run, but pinch hitter Jacob Walker hit a two-out, three-run home run to right field.

CCU starting pitcher Tyler Poole only allowed two hits in four-plus innings, but allowed four walks and hit a batter. He allowed two runs (one earned). Beckwith only surrendered two hits in three scoreless innings. Schaefer allowed two hits with a strikeout in one inning, while Morrison retired the only batter he faced.

Coastal Carolina will hit the road for four games starting Tuesday (April 5) with a contest at nationally-ranked South Carolina. First pitch is set for 7 pm and the game will be telecast on the SEC Network.
