Chants Offense Shines On Day 3 Of The Battle At The Beach


Feb. 17, 2018


After a day where their offense had just five hits, the Coastal Carolina offense was reinvigorated on Saturday afternoon as they put together a combined score of 20-0 in the games against UConn and Robert Morris. Freshman Courtney Dean shined as she connected twice on two long balls that secured a Chants victory in game one.

Game 1 Stats

The Chanticleers used a four-run second inning to pull away from the UConn Huskies as senior Timi Tooley started off the Coastal rally with a single to left field and to come around to score later in the inning off a grand slam home run by Courtney Dean.

The freshman connected again for the second time when in the bottom of the fifth she blasted an opposite-field home run over the right-field fence.

That was all the offense that junior pitcher Ashley Guillette would need for her fifth win of the season as she allowed just four hits over seven innings.

Freshman Taylor Sweigart also added her third homer of the season in the top of the fifth.

Game 2 stats

After picking up two quick runs in the bottom of the first inning against Robert Morris, Coastal roared back in the bottom of the second inning with five more runs as freshman Stavi Augur singled in senior Kailey Mellen and then two batters later Tooley doubled to right center for two more Chant runs. Sophomore Mackenzie Budinger came through with another big hit when she doubled in Tooley and freshman Samantha Sack.

The Coastal fifth was the biggest inning in Saturday’s doubleheader for the Chanticleers when they were able to score seven with the help of another RBI double by Budinger. Pinch-hitter Chelsea D’Avilar was able come through off the bench with a two-run homer to left. For the fifth time this season, Kaitlin Beasley-Polko threw a complete game as she allowed three hits while striking out ten Colonial batters. The Battle at the Beach continues on Sunday, but Coastal will return next Friday as they begin the Chanticleer Showdown at CCU Softball Stadium.
