Wolfpack completes sweep of Chants with five-run rally

ccubase-remillardZach Remillard hit a home run in the eighth inning to give Coastal Carolina (22-26) a 4-3 lead, but North Carolina State (27-19) answered with a home run of its own and a total of five runs in the bottom half of the eighth to claim an 8-4 victory Sunday afternoon at Doak Field.

As it did Saturday, Coastal grabbed an early lead, scoring twice in the top of the first. Connor Owings coaxed a leadoff walk and Michael Paez followed with a single. Jake Kane laid down a sacrifice bunt, but a throwing error allowed Kane to reach, moved Paez to third and plated Owings. Paez later scored on a Remillard sacrifice fly.

Likewise, NC State answered in the bottom of the first as it did Saturday. Trea Turner started the home half hitting a solo home run but Dalton Moats retired the next three batters to keep the score 2-1.

The Wolfpack tied in the game in the fourth despite a strikeout on what should have been third out. Chance Shepard singled and moved to second on Jake Armstrong’s walk. A wild pitch moved the runners up to third and second, respectively. Then, despite getting Kyle Cavanaugh to strikeout with two outs, a wild pitch allowed Shepard to score and Cavanaugh to reach first to tie the game at 2-2.

Turner manufactured a run for the home team in the fifth. The junior reached on a leadoff bunt single, stole second, took third on a ground out and scored on a wild pitch.

In the sixth, Coastal tied the game at 3-3. Kane and Tyler Chadwick walked while Colin Hering singled to load the bases with two outs. Designated hitter Riley Norton drew a full count walk to force home Kane and tie the game.

Remilard gave Coastal a 4-3 lead in the top of the eighth, hitting a home run to start the frame.

However, in the bottom of the inning, Shepard had a leadoff single and Jake Armstrong followed with a two-run home run down the left field line to put the Wolfpack up 5-4. Preston Palmeiro singled and, after an intentional walk to Turner with two outs, Logan Ratledge delivered an RBI single. Andrew Knizner then singled to drive in Turner and Ratledge for the 8-4 advantage.

The Chants put two runners on in the ninth thanks to an Owings double and walk by Paez. However, Cody Beckman got a deep fly out to center to end the game.

Moats pitched five complete for Coastal, allowing five hits and three runs with four walks and a strikeout. Cole Schaefer added two scoreless innings. Chase Adkins (1-5) suffered the loss, allowing five runs in 0.2 innings. Brad Stone (4-2) was credited with the win despite giving up the home run to Remillard, whole Cody Beckman got his second save of the season.

Coastal Carolina will not play again until next Friday, traveling to Liberty for a three-game set May 9-11 to wrap up the Chants’ 10-game road swing.
