Chants win Sun Belt home debut via 14K performance

Sophomore right-handed pitcher Zach McCambley struck out a career-high 10 batters to lead a Chanticleers’ pitching attack that fanned a season-high 14 hitters and stranded a total of 14 Troy runners in a 4-2 win over the Trojans at Springs Brooks Stadium on Friday night.

No. 16 Coastal Carolina improved to 4-0 in the Sun Belt and 17-4-1 overall with the win.

McCambley (4-0) allowed just three hits and three walks while striking out a career-high 10 batters over 5.0-scoreless innings to record his fourth win of the season. His 10 punch-outs were the most by a Coastal pitcher since Jason Bilous fanned 11 batters versus Little Rock last season on May 11, 2018.

The bullpen of Matt Eardensohn (3.0 IP, 1 ER, 6 hits, 2 K), Anthony Veneziano (0.1 IP, 1 ER, 2 hits, BB, K) and Alaska Abney (0.2 IP, BB, K) did the rest, as the trio combined for four strikeouts over the final four innings of play.

Abney (3) inherited two runners and pitched out of a bases-loaded jam with the go-ahead run on first base to register his third save of the year.

At the plate, the Chants managed just nine hits for the game, yet scored four runs highlighted by a two-home run from Zach Biermann (1-for-4, HR, run), a solo shot by Jake Wright (3-for-4, HR, 3B, RBI, 2 runs) and an RBI double from Scott McKeon (2-for-3, 2B, RBI).

Troy starter Levi Thomas (3-2) allowed all four runs on seven hits and nine strikeouts over 5.2 innings of work.

The Trojans recorded 11 base hits, eight of which were singles, as lead-off hitter Rigsby Mosley (3-for-5, 2B, run), Dalton Sinquefield (2-for-3, 2 BB, RBI), Logan Cerny (2-for-5) and Manning Early (2-for-4, run) all had multiple hits for the game.

Coastal (17-4-1, 4-0 Sun Belt) and Troy (10-12, 0-4 Sun Belt) will play game two of the three-game series on Saturday at 2 p.m.
