The Chanticleers used a strong second inning during the second game to go ahead 4-0, as Beth Kassuhn scored the first run on a single through the right side by Sara Rasley. Coastal earned its second and third run on a single to right field by Sarah Maples that scored Rasley and Kelsey McNaughton. Jazmin Daigle then hit another ball to right field that advance Jessie Winans home.

South Carolina had runners in scoring position during the third inning, but the Gamecocks were unable to capitalize.

Coastal extended its lead to five in the fifth inning when Brooke Donovan scored on Kory Hayden’s single to center field.

South Carolina made a comeback in the seventh inning when Olivia Lawrence hit a home run that scored Shelby Gonzales to put the score at 5-2. The Gamecocks picked up a single on the next at bat, but recorded the third out before cutting further into the Chanticleers lead.

Hayden finished the game with two hits and one RBI in three at bats, while Winans recorded one hit and one run in two at bats, as well as eight assists. Rasley ended the game with one hit, one run and one RBI in three at bats, along with 12 putouts.

Mastriania, who entered the game coming off of her first collegiate no-hitter, pitched seven innings for the Chanticleers, striking out two, while giving up six hits and one walk in 29 batters faced in the win.

Kierstyn White pitched 1.2 innings for the Gamecocks, allowing five hits, one walk and no strikeouts in 11 batters faced to record the loss.

“I was pleased that our team showed up today and stepped up to the challenge in facing a good team and not only beating them once, but twice,” said head coach Kelley Green.

“The two wins against South Carolina is huge for us and says a lot about our team right now. I’m happy with our performance, especially how our pitchers performed today,” finished Green
