Coastal Carolina softball gets back in the win column with 5-3 victory at CSU

Charleston, SC -

From Coastal Carolina University

CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Coastal Carolina University softball team got back in the win column and finished its three-game series with Charleston Southern Wednesday, April 14, with a 5-3 victory over the host Buccaneers.  The Chanticleers went 2-1 in the series and improved to 20-21 overall and 2-4 in the Big South Conference while the Bucs fell to 21-22-1 and 5-7 in the league.

Coastal finished the game with 10 hits, including freshman Jazmin Daigle going 3-for-4 at the plate and Alyssa Tornatore going 2-for-3.  Katelin Edwards got the starting nod in the circle for the Chants, allowing three runs on seven hits and striking out three to improve to 10-7 on the season. Kimberly Hobbs took the loss for the Bucs, falling to 7-6 on the season.

After three scoreless innings, the Chants put the first run on the board in the fourth inning.  Daigle got things started with a single up the middle and advanced to second on an illegal pitch.  Cacia Pierre followed with a single through the right side, sending Daigle to third with one out.  Megan Johnson came in to pinch run for Pierre and advanced to third off a Stacy Snellings double to the center field fence that also scored Daigle, putting Coastal up 1-0.  Michelle Evans singled in her at bat to score Johnson before Tornatore followed with a hit of her own to center field that plated Snellings and gave the Chants a 3-0 lead.

Charleston Southern did not go away with out a fight, scoring two runs of its own off a home run by Kristin Kelleher.

Coastal maintained a one-run lead until it put up two more insurance runs in the top of the seventh inning.  With two outs, Ashley Pisone doubled to right center field and Sarah Maples brought her home with a single. Maples advanced to third on a hit by Daigle and scored the final run of the game on a throwing error by the left fielder, giving Coastal a 5-3 lead.

The Buccaneers tried to rally back in the bottom of the seventh with the tying runs on base, but came up short, stranding two runners.

The Chanticleers return home to face the 2009 Big South Champion Radford in a three-game series April 17-18.  The first game on Saturday is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. at the CCU Softball Field.

    There's a federal push to crack down on an herbal supplement called Kratom, a botanical substance that grows naturally in Southeast Asia. Some states are working to ban the substance the Food and Drug Administration claims has similar effects as opioids. The FDA also recently re-issued a statement on Kratom, saying it presents a significant risk of exposure to salmonella. The FDA classifies Kratom as an opioid, claiming it has "opioid-like qualities."
