No. 22 Chants salvage split of twinbill with Longwood

ccubase-7batZach Remillard hit a home run in the first inning, Michael Paez added one in the ninth and Mike Morrison struck out a career-high eight to lead #22 Coastal Carolina to a 7-2 win in game two of a Friday doubleheader at Longwood. The Lancers won game one, 5-2.

Coastal Carolina (12-8, 1-1 Big South) and Longwood (11-8, 1-1) will play the final game of the weekend series on Saturday with first pitch set for 10 am at Bolding Stadium.

Morrison earned his second save of the season as he retired 12 of the 13 batters he faced over the final four innings. He sat down the first 11 batters he faced before allowing a two-out single in the ninth. Morrison promptly struck out the next batter to record the save and post a career-high in strikeouts. Cole Schaefer (1-0) earned his first win of the season and CCU improved to 5-0 in games he has started. Schaefer allowed four hits and two runs (one earned) with four walks and four strikeouts.

Coastal bounced back early in game two to grab a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Paez (2-for-3) hit a leadoff double. Then, with two outs, Zach Remillard (1-for-3 with two walks) hit his eighth home run of the season, sneaking the ball just inside the left field foul pole.

Longwood scored one in the third to make the score 2-1. Sammy Miller reached on a fielder’s choice and scored on a double off the right field fence by CJ Roth. Michael Osinski put runners on first and second with an infield single and the Lancers would load the bases after a CCU error. However, Schaefer rebounded to induce an inning-ending double play to limit the damage.

The Chants got that run back in the top of the fourth. G.K. Young (2-for-5) had a leadoff single and advanced to second on a failed pickoff attempt. Young took third on a ground out and scored on a two-out, RBI single from Kevin Woodall Jr.

Coastal pushed across another run in the fifth. David Parrett drew a leadoff walk and scored on a two-out, RBI double by Young.

However, Longwood took advantage of CCU error in the bottom of the fifth to make it a two-run game, 4-2, once again. Miller reached on a walk and was on third with two outs. CCU looked to escape unscathed, but a dropped fly ball allowed Miller to score. After a walk, Schaefer escaped with a strikeout to keep it a two-run game.

Paez gave Coastal a three-run advantage in the ninth as he delivered a one-out, solo home run to left field. It was the third round-tripper for the preseason All-American this season. Billy Cooke (2-for-4) followed with a single and would go on to steal both second and third. Remillard walked and stole second to put a pair of runners in scoring position. On a wild pitch, Cooke easily scored, but the Longwood catcher was slow to retrieve the ball and Remillard did not hesitate, scoring from second on the play.
