Wolfpack outslugs Chants; national champ Cavs next

ccubase-19In a game with the two  teams combining for nine home runs – five by North Carolina State and four by Coastal Carolina, it was the 10th-ranked Wolfpack that held on for a 13-10 win versus the 21st-ranked Chanticleers Saturday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium as part of the 8th Annual Caravelle Resort Tournament.

Coastal Carolina will conclude the event by hosting fourth-ranked and defending national champion Virginia Sunday at 1 pm on ESPN3.

Four of the nine home runs were hit in the final two innings to break open a 7-7 tied ball game. NC State hit three round-trippers in the eighth inning – scoring four runs total – and scored twice more in the ninth to own a 13-7 advantage. Coastal just missed a three-run home run to end the eighth and Kevin Woodall Jr. did hit a three-run blast in the ninth, but NC State relief Tommy DeJuneas got a pop out and a strikeout to end the contest.

For the Wolfpack, Preston Palmeiro was 4-for-4 with four RBI, Josh McLain was 3-for-5 with two RBI and Joe Dunand drove in two as well. Will Gilbert (1-0) was credited with the win. He pitched 2.1 innings in relief and allowed one hit and one walk with three strikeouts.

Coastal was led by Zach Remillard and G.K. Young. Remillard was 3-for-5 with a double, two home runs and three RBI while Young was 3-for-5 with three RBI. Billy Cooke and Seth Lancaster each contribute two hits and Woodall had three RBI.

Alex Cunningham struck out seven in 4.0 innings, but allowed five hits and six runs with two walks. Bobby Holmes (0-1) suffered the loss, allowing six hits and five runs with five strikeouts in 3.0 innings.

NC State grabbed an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first when catcher Andrew Knizner hit a 3-2 home run over the left field wall.

Coastal answered with three runs in the home half to take a 3-1 lead. Michael Paez hit a one-out double to center and scored one batter later on Young’s RBI single down the right field line. Ramillard followed with a two-run shot to left field.

The Wolfpack cut their deficit to one, 3-2, thanks to a two-out, solo home run from Xavier LeGrant. Coastal quickly regained the advantage as Tyler Chadwick began the bottom of the second by depositing a solo home run into the CCU bullpen to give his team a two-run cushion again, 4-2.

NC State bounced back to trim its deficit to one, 4-3, with a run in the top of the third. Brock Deathridge drew a leadoff walk and scored on an RBO double by Palmeiro.

Coastal threatened in the third, but NC State relief pitcher Sean Adler recorded a bases-loaded strikeout to keep it a one-run game. However, CCU did get on the board in the fourth. Cooke singled and moved to third after a bunt single by Lancaster and a NC State error. Anthony Marks plated Cooke with an RBI fielder’s choice.

The Wolfpack responded with three in the fifth. Deathridge drew another leadoff walk, took second on a single by McLain and scored on an RBI double from Palmeiro. McLain tied the game on a wild pitch. After a walk, Chance Shepard hit into a double play, allowing Palmeiro to score and give NCA State a 6-5 lead.

The lead was short lived as Remillard started the bottom of the fifth with a solo blast on the boardwalk, his second round-tripper of the day, to tie the game at 6-6.

Coastal regained the lead in the bottom of the sixth. Marks drew a walk, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI single by Young.

NC State put a four spot in the board in the eighth thanks to three home runs. Dunand started the eighth with a solo home run to left center field to give his squad an 8-7 lead. After a two-out bunt single by Deathridge, McLain hit a two-run home run to left field. On the next pitch, Palmeiro hit a home run to center field.

The Wolfpack expanded their lead to 13-7 in the top of the ninth. Garrett Suggs delivered a pinch-hit double off the center field walk, advanced to third on a balk and scored on an RBI single from Dunand. Dunand took second on a wild pitch, moved to third on a fly out and scored on an infield single by Pitarra.
