Red-hot Chants await visit from Gamecocks on Tuesday

ccubase-7battingThe Coastal Carolina baseball team, winners of eight straight, will host #7 South Carolina Tuesday at Springs Brooks Stadium. First pitch is set for 6 pm and only standing room tickets remain available.

The Chanticleers are 17-6 this season while the Gamecocks bring an 18-6 record to Conway. Part of CCU’s eight-game win streak includes victories versus the #11 North Carolina and Clemson each of the previous two Tuesdays.

Coastal Carolina and South Carolina have only met on 18 previous occasions with the Gamecocks owning a 13-5 advantage in the series that dates back to 1976. Coastal has hosted South Carolina seven times, posting a 3-1 record on campus while USC owns a 3-0 advantage over the Chants when playing in Myrtle Beach. (CCU hosted USC in Myrtle Beach on Feb. 24, 2002 as part of the annual Baseball at the Beach event and, as the #4 national seed, CCU was upset by South Carolina at the 2010 NCAA Super Regional in Myrtle Beach as the Gamecocks won the first of their two national titles.)

Coastal Carolina will start freshman left-hander Shane Sawczak while South Carolina will counter with sophomore lefty Josh Reagan.

The Chanticleers enter Tuesday’s game ranked second in the NCAA by hitting 1.26 home runs per game (CCU’s 29 total home runs rank fourth) and 13th nationally in scoring 7.5 runs per game. Individually, Casey Schroeder ranks ninth in the NCAA with seven home runs while David Parrett is 12st with six. South Carolina brings the nation’s 13th-best ERA to Conway (2.40) and has posted four shutouts this season to rank eighth nationally.

Gates to Springs Brooks Stadium open one hour prior to first pitch – which will be 5 pm on Tuesday. The Teal Lot (between the football and baseball facilities) will be closed during the day Tuesday and will open one-and-a-half (1.5) hours prior to first pitch – which will be 4:30 Tuesday. Once open, the Teal Lot parking spaces are available for free on a first-come basis.

Due to limited parking on CCU’s campus, fans are encouraged to use the new parking lot on Highway 544, east of the TD Sports Complex. A shuttle will run every 15 minutes from the lot and stop at Springs Brooks Stadium. The shuttle will run throughout the day and for one hour after the conclusion of play. Parking in the Hwy 544 Lot and use of the shuttles is free. More than 1,300 people utilized the four shuttles last Tuesday for the CCU-Clemson game.
