Lady Chanticleers celebrate Senior Day by sweeping PC

The Coastal Carolina softball team celebrated Senior Day by scoring a season-high 14 runs and rolling to a 14-2 five-inning rout of Presbyterian Sunday afternoon, to sweep the Big South Conference series.

The Chanticleers (31-18, 16-5) scored six runs in each of the first two innings en route to their sixth straight victory, their longest winning streak of the season.

Coastal racked up 14 hits off of three Presbyterian pitchers, with Kory Hayden going 3-for-3 to lead the way. Jessie Winans hit a three-run homer, while Cacia Pierre and Paige Goldsack each had two hits and two RBIs. Bri Chiusano added two hits.

Kiana Quolas (19-9) pitched four innings, allowing one earned run on six hits to notch her fifth victory of the week. She struck out four and walked two.

After Presbyterian scored a run in the top of the first, the first seven Coastal batters reached base in the bottom of the inning against Blue Hose starter Sydney Seigler. Chiusano quickly extended her hitting streak to six games with leadoff single to center. Quolas followed with a base hit to left and the bases loaded were loaded when a dribbler off the bat of Hayden stayed fair on home plate. Pierre followed with an RBI single to right to tie the game and Jazmin Daigle drew a walk to put CCU ahead 2-1. Goldsack then hit a two-run double toward the right-field corner and a walk to Morgan Noad reloaded the bases.

Kensley Loudermelk entered in relief for Presbyterian, but she walked Brooke Donovan to bring home another run. Two batters later, Chiusano came up for the second time and drew the third free pass of the inning to make it 6-1.

The Chants then added six more hits and sent 11 batters to the plate in the second. Hayden and Pierre started it off with singles and Daigle walked again to load the bases. Two batters later, Noad hit an RBI single to right. After pinch-runner Sara Rasley scored on a wild pitch, Winans homered to right-center – her fifth of the season – to give CCU a double-digit lead at 11-1. The Chants quickly repacked the bases as Chiusano followed with an infield single, Quolas was hit by a pitch and Hayden singled to left. Pierre then drew another run-scoring walk to cap the inning.

Coastal finished its scoring with two runs in the fourth on Jenna Goldsack’s first career hit and RBIs. After a pair of PC errors and a single by Daigle, Goldsack ripped a two-run double to the gap in left-center. The 14 runs were the most Coastal has scored in a game since April of 2011, when it also tallied 14 against Presbyterian in a nine-inning win.

Also Sunday, Morgan Mastriania returned from injury to pitch one perfect inning for the Chanticleers.

Coastal will play its final home games of the season on Tuesday, April 23 when it hosts College of Charleston for a nonconference doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m. It will be the last games at home for seniors Daigle and Pierre, who were honored prior to Sunday’s contest.
