Coastal comeback bid falls short in ninth to Campbell

ccubase-paezCoastal Carolina had the tying run at the plate in the ninth inning, but the rally came up short as Campbell held on for a 7-4 victory Friday afternoon at Pelicans Ballpark.

The Chanticleers (22-31, 12-13 Big South) and Camels (35-17, 18-7) will conclude the 2014 regular season Saturday with first pitch set for Noon. Prior to the contest, Coastal Carolina will honor its 2014 baseball seniors.

The Camels jumped out to an early lead, scoring once in the top of the first. Steven Leonard reached on a one-out single. A passed ball allowed Leonard to take second and Matt Parrish was hit by a pitch. With two outs, Will Albertson lined an RBI single to right field to bring home Leonard.

In the third, Campbell loaded the bases with one out. Albertson hit a fly ball to right field, which was deep enough to score Leonard for a 2-0 lead.

The Camels pushed their advantage to 5-0 in the fifth. With one out, Danny Pardo reached on an error. Leonard followed with a single, but an error allowed Pardo to take third. Matt Nadolski struck out, but a passed ball allowed Pardo to score and moved Leonard to second. Parrish singled to plate Leonard, stole second and scored on Albertson’s RBI single.

Campbell added two runs in the eighth to lead 7-0. Elijah Trail singled and John Reilly was hit by a pitch. Pardo followed with an RBI single to right field with Reilly taking third on the play. Leonard matched Pardo with an RBI to right field as well.

Coastal answered with three runs in the bottom of the eighth. The Chants started the frame with consecutive singles by Anthony Marks, Michael Paez, Connor Owings and Jake Kane. The singles by Owings and Kane drove in runs and chased Campbell relief pitcher Bobby Thorson. G.K. Young made the score 7-3 with a sacrifice fly to center field.

The Chants loaded the bases in the ninth but managed just one run to provide the 7-4 final. Reid Moman had leadoff double and took third on a wild pitch. Steven Whitaker followed with a walk to put runners on the corners. Paez hit a pop fly but the second baseman dropped it to load the bases. Owings delivered a sacrifice fly to drive in Moman. Camels’ relief pitcher Ryan Thompson induced a game-ending ground ball to secure the win.

Heath Bowers (9-2) earned the win, pitching four scoreless innings before exiting. He allowed three hits with no walks and four strikeouts. Tyler Herb (6-6) suffered the loss and ends his career with an impressive 11-3 record in Big South games. He allowed four hits and two runs with a walk and three strikeouts in 2.1 innings.
