No. 20 Chants take twinbill, sweep series with Radford

ccubase-dugoutAnthony Marks, Zach Remillard and Seth Lancaster each had three hits and Austin Kitchen shut down Radford for four innings as #20 Coastal Carolina completed both a Sunday doubleheader and weekend series sweep over the Highlanders with a 7-2 decision in game two at the Radford Baseball Stadium.

The Chanticleers, which won 7-4 in game one Sunday, improves to 23-10 overall and 8-1 in the Big South. Overall, CCU has now swept each of its last three weekend opponents and won 16 of its last 19. Radford falls to 8-24 and 3-6 in the league.

For the Sunday doubleheader, Marks was 6-for10 with four RBI, Remillard was 3-for-5 with three RBI and Lancaster was 5-for-8.

Kitchen (2-0) only allowed one hit and two walks over 4.0 scoreless innings, with three strikeouts, to earn the win. Mike Morrison worked the final two innings and he recorded four strikeouts. Over his last 13 outings, Morrison has lowered his season ERA to 0.60 as he has not allowed a run in 25.1 innings with 37 strikeouts, retiring 76 of his 93 batters faced over the span.

Coastal used three straight hits and a sacrifice fly to grab a 1-0 lead in the first. Marks (3-for-5) started the game with an infield single, but was thrown out at third on a Michael Paez single. G.K. Young followed with a single to put runners on the corners and Zach Remillard (3-for-3) lined a sacrifice fly to left field to score Paez.

Radford tied the game in the bottom of the first. Kyle Butler and Sane Johnsonbaugh hit the first two pitches on the home half for a single and double, respectively. After a strikeout, Trevor Riggs walked to load the bases. Jonathan Gonzalez plated Butler with an RBI ground out. CCU starting pitcher Tyler Poole then got another ground out to end the inning.

The Chants regained the advantage in the top of the second. Tyler Chadwick singled, took second on a wild pitch and scored on a sharp single to right field by Seth Lancaster (3-for-4).

In the fourth, the Chants scored four runs for a 6-1 cushion. Coastal loaded the bases with two outs thanks to a Lancaster walk, a Marks single and Paez walk. Remillard lined a single to left field to bring home Lancaster and Marks for a 4-1 advantage.  Connor Owing followed with an RBI single to right field to chase RU starting pitcher Mitchell MacKeith, who allowed 11 hits in 3.2 innings. Billy Cooke welcomed new pitcher Ryan Sande with an RBI single to cap the scoring in the inning.

After allowing two hits to start the game, Poole cruised through the second and third innings before allowing a hit and walking two Highlanders to load the bases in the fourth with no outs. Coastal turned to Kitchen. The CCU freshman got a ground out, but Gonzalez scored on the play to make the score 6-2 in CCU’s favor. The lefty then got a strikeout and fly out to limit the damage.

Coastal took a five-run lead, 7-2, in the top of the seventh. Owings walked, Cooke had a bunt single and Lancaster drew a two-out walk. Marks chopped an infield single behind second base to score Owings for Marks’ second infield hit of the game and 14 for the season.

Coastal Carolina will host nationally-ranked College of Charleston on Tuesday with first pitch set for 6 pm.
