Winthrop avoids sweep by shutting out Chanticleers

ccubase-michael paez vs toledo 3 (2)Winthrop sophomore Matt Crohan, who pitched a one-hitter and struck out 12 in eight innings, took a no-hitter two outs into the sixth inning to lead the Eagles to a 3-0 win versus Coastal Carolina Sunday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium.

While the Chanticleers won the weekend series, Coastal had its 11-game win streak snap and is 20-7 overall, 5-1 in the Big South. Winthrop improves to 18-10, 2-4.

Crohan struck out at least one batter in seven of his eight innings pitched and retired 12 straight batters from the second to fifth innings. His no-hit bid was spoiled when Anthony Marks, who had CCU’s only two hits Sunday, looped a ball into center field with Anthony Paulsen nearly coming up with a sliding catch. Travis Shelley earned his first save of the season working a scoreless ninth frame.

Winthrop got on the scoreboard first with a run in the top of the third. Tyler Ashbill reached on an error, Mitch Spires singled to center field and Paulsen loaded the bases with a bunt single. Roger Gonzalez brought home Ashbill with a single to left field and kept the bases loaded. Coastal turned to relief pitch Mike Morrison, who got a strikeout, ground out and fly out to limit the damage.

The Eagles added a run in the fourth. Babe Thomas singled and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt. Ashbill followed with an RBI double to center field.

Winthrop pushed its advantage to three with a run in the sixth inning. Ashbill reached on a fielder’s choice and stole second. Spires singled up the middle, but an error on the play allowed Ashbill to score.

Coastal Carolina will hit the road for a Tuesday game at Wake Forest. First pitch in Winston-Salem is set for 6 pm. The Chanticleers will return to Springs Brooks Stadium for a three-game series with Big South foe Longwood. Game times are 6 pm on Thursday, 6 pm on Friday and 2 pm on Saturday.
