Michael Paez was 3-for-4 and Tyler Herb won his fourth straight on the mound as Coastal Carolina rallied from a 3-0 deficit to claim a 7-3 victory versus Charleston Southern.
The Chanticleers (11-15, 3-4 Big South) and Buccaneers (15-13, 1-6 Big South) dodged rain throughout the contest, but field conditions stayed good enough to finish the contest.
Herb (4-3) tossed his second complete game and Coastal’s first since he accomplished the feat versus Manhattan in the 2012 NCAA Columbia Regional.
