MT. PLEASANT – The #20 College of Charleston Cougars (29-9) converted three straight walks in the third inning into four runs and held on to defeat #24 Coastal Carolina (27-13), 8-5, Wednesday evening at Patriots Point.

The third of the three walks in the third inning forced in a run. The then Cougars hit a two-run single and an RBI single to take a 4-1 lead. Alex Pastorius added a two-run home run in the fourth, which proved to be the difference.

Coastal struck first with a run in the top of the third. Tyler Chadwick hit a leadoff double, advanced to third on a Billy Cooke sacrifice bunt and scored on an RB I single to center field by Anthony Marks.

The Cougars responded with four runs in the home half of the third. With two outs, Ryan Brown hit a slow roller for an infield hit. Three straight walks forced home the tying run and Nick Pappas followed with a two-run single. Morgan Phillips then plated Blake Butler with an RBI single up the middle.

The College of Charleston added two runs in the fourth. After a walk to Brown, Pastorius hit a two-run home run to left field.

Coastal Carolina will return to league play with a three-game set at Presbyterian this weekend.
