Coastal Carolina baseball edges North Carolina in 11th inning

From staff reportsApril 9, 2014 

— Korey Dunbar started the game off with a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning, but that’s all North Carolina would get and the Chanticleers eventually edged the Tar Heels in 11.

Tyler Poole pitched the final three innings, allowing just one hit and striking out two, to earn the win.

The Chants scored their first run on a G.K. Young lineout in the sixth inning, then scored the tying run in the ninth inning on a Michael Paez sacrifice bunt.

They would score the winning run again on a sacrifice bunt in the top of the 11th, this one coming off the bat of Zach Remillard.

CCU softball wins third straight

The Coastal Carolina softball team got two more strong pitching performances and enough timely hitting to sweep a doubleheader against Lowcountry rival Charleston Southern on Wednesday, notching a 2-1 victory in the first game before posting a 3-0 shutout in the nightcap.

The Chanticleers have now won five straight games to improve their overall record to 28-11 and move their Big South-leading mark to 10-1. Charleston Southern dropped to 19-26-1 overall and 5-8 in conference play.

Kiana Quolas won her seventh consecutive start in the opener and Ashley Bagwell followed with a two-hit shutout for her third straight victory.

Men’s tennis

The Coastal Carolina men’s tennis team jumped out to 3-1 lead, but the Liberty Flames rallied on the final three singles courts to walk away from Wednesday’s match with a 4-3 win, according to a university release.

The loss drops the Chants to 10-9 overall. Their 2-4 Big South record may drop them to seventh in the conference pending the result of Wednesday’s match between Radford and James Madison.

The Chants gained an early advantage over the Flames, picking up wins on all three doubles courts to take the match’s opening point.

Philippe Tsangaridis and Leo Christofides quickly dispatched Liberty’s Jorge Azuero and Alejandro Llamas on the first doubles court, 8-3.

Ted Nilsson and Jabor Al-Mutawa followed up with an 8-5 win at No. 3 against Shea Thomas and Guillem Secanell to clinch the doubles point.

The Chants’ No. 2 pair of Garik Yedigarian and Renan Samed completed the sweep of the doubles round with a close 8-7 victory over Dillon Segur and Egon Samaai.

Segur brought the Flames even with the Chants as play moved to singles, taking a 6-4, 6-2 win over Hunter Whalen at No. 5.

Samed brought the lead back to the Chants after downing Vaughan at No. 4, 7-5, 6-1, and Nilsson put the Chants up 3-1 after taking a 6-1, 6-3 win on the second court over Samaai.

Trailing by two points, Liberty rallied on the three remaining singles courts.

Azuero finished off a 6-3, 6-4 match against Christofides at No. 3 before Thomas downed No. 101 Tsangaridis in straight sets at No. 1, 6-4, 6-4.

Women’s tennis

The Coastal Carolina women’s tennis team was defeated 6-1 by No. 73 Charleston Southern on Wednesday afternoon at the Buccaneer Tennis Complex. The Chanticleers drop to 17-5, 5-3 with the loss while the Buccaneers improve to 14-3, 8-0 to remain in first place in the Big South.
