CHARLESTON Despite getting out to a first-inning lead, the Coastal Carolina baseball team let up six runs to The Citadel in the bottom of the first en route to a 12-4 loss to the Bulldogs on Tuesday.
Tyler Chadwick hit a two-run single in the first inning to give the Chanticleers a two-run lead. It was short-lived.
The Bulldogs (11-14) sent 10 men to the plate and scored six runs in the home half of the first inning. Tyler Griffin belted a two-run single through the right side, Connor Walsh followed with an RBI and – after a sacrifice bunt – Jonathan Stokes hit a two-run double to left center field for a 6-2 lead.
Ross White (1-0) was credited with the win, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief. Cole Schaeffer (3-3) suffered the loss.
The Chanticleers added two runs in the fourth to cut their deficit to 8-4. Richard Carter drove in Chadwick on a groundout, and Reid Moman followed with a bunt single that scored Nick Oberg.
