Coastal’s red-hot bats cap lopsided sweep of Hatters

ccubase-7batZach Remillard and G.K. Young each had three hits while Matt Beaird drove in three to lead #21 Coastal Carolina to a 12-2 win over Stetson Saturday afternoon at Spring Brooks Stadium.

With the series sweep over the Hatters, the Chanticleers improve to 16-9 and have won 11 of its last 15. Coastal batted .402, scored 40 runs and hit nine home runs in the three games. Leading the CCU offense for the weekend was Tyler Chadwick. The senior was 2-for-3 Saturday with two runs scored and two RBI. For the series, he was 7-for-10 with three home runs and 12 RBI.

However, the Chanticleer pitching staff was not to be overlooked, allowing just one walk in each of the three wins with 21 strikeouts.

On the other side, Coastal’s offense was productive against a solid Stetson (12-13) pitching staff. Entering the series, the Hatters’ hurlers had only allowed six home runs and 91 runs total (69 earned) while opponents were batting just .258 off the staff.

For the third consecutive game, Coastal sent at least 10 men to the plate in the first inning. The Chants scored eight runs in the first frame Saturday after scoring eight runs in the first in game one and four in the game two.

Tyler Poole earned the win to improve to 4-2. The CCU graduate allowed four hits (three in one inning) and two runs with a walk and six strikeouts. Andrew Beckwith, Austin Kitchen and Mike Morrison pitched each of the last three innings and each recorded a strikeout. Over Morrison’s last five outings, he had not allowed a run while retiring 37 of his 44 batters face with 22 strikeouts.

The last time Coastal scored double-digits in three straight games was in 2010 at the Big South Tournament with wins over VMI (11-2), Radford (11-9) and High Point (15-9). The last time CCU scored at least 40 runs in a series sweep was earlier in the 2010 season when the Chants beat Winthrop 20-3, 11-7 and 10-4 from May 8-10.

Coastal Carolina will stay home to host The Citadel on Wednesday (Mar. 30) with first pitch set for 6 pm.
