MYRTLE BEACH Coastal Carolina pitchers Tyler Poole, Brock Hunter and Ryan Connolly combined for 10 strikeouts with just one walk to lead the Chanticleers (4-4) to a 4-1 win over Florida Atlantic (5-4) Friday evening and snap a three-game CCU losing streak as part of the Caravelle Resort's Baseball at the Beach at TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark.

Poole (1-1) earned his first collegiate win after redshirting his true freshman season in 2012 and suffering a loss in his debut at #1 North Carolina (Feb. 18). The Hickory, N.C., native scattered six hits over 5.1 innings allowing the one run with a walk and four strikeouts. Hunter was brought in with one out, runners on second and third and CCU holding a 3-1 lead. The freshman left-hander struck out Mike Spano looking and gave way to Connelly for the remainder of the game. Connolly did not allow a hit or a walk and struck out five over 3.1 scoreless innings for his first save of the season.

Florida Atlantic starter Austin Gomber (1-1) was saddled with the loss. He allowed five hits and four runs (two earned) with one walk and five strikeouts.

The Caravelle Resort's Baseball at the Beach will continue Saturday with three games. Saturday's schedule is UMBC-West Virginia (10 am), Indiana-Coastal (1:30 pm) and Florida Atlantic-NC State (5 pm).

The event concludes Sunday with Indiana-UMBC at 10 am, West Virginia-Florida Atlantic at 1:30 pm and NC State-Coastal at 5 pm.
