Coastal baseball scores walk-off win over Kansas State
CONWAY - For the second straight game, Coastal Carolina (3-0) scored a run in the 10th inning to secure a 4-3 win, defeating Kansas State (0-3) on Sunday afternoon at Springs Brooks Stadium in the third day of the 19th annual Brittain Resorts Baseball at the Beach.
On Saturday versus #18 Oklahoma, CCU's Cory Wood delivered the game winning hit in the 10th. On Sunday, Wood came up with a one-out double in the 10th before scoring the game winner.
After Wood's double and a fly out gave CCU two outs, Kansas State elected to intentionally walk Seth Lancaster to put runners on first and second. Kevin Woodall Jr., made the Wildcats pay by lining a single down the third-base line to easily score Wood and set off the celebration.
Coastal was pushed to extra innings as Kansas State scored two runs in the top of the ninth. A nice diving catch my Cameron Pearcey in the top of the 10th with a KSU runner in scoring position kept the game tied at 3-3 and set the stage for the dramatic end in the bottom of the 10th.
Both Wood and Woodall were 2-for-5 in the win with Woodall driving in the first run of the game as well as the game winner. Kieton Rivers also had two hits.
Matt Eardensohn (1-0) got the win in relief. The junior college transfer from Omaha worked the final 2.2 innings and allowed three hits, two run and two walks with four strikeouts. Anthony Veneziano started on the mound for CCU. He scattered eight hits over 5.1 innings, allowing one run with no walks and three strikeouts.
Coastal Carolina will close the Brittain Resorts Baseball at the Beach on Monday by hosting #17 Indiana at 11 a.m.
