BATON ROUGE, LA (WMBF) – Coastal Carolina baseball used the long ball to help power its way past LSU in its NCAA super regional opener on Saturday, winning by an 11-8 final. The win puts the Chants nine innings away from booking a trip to Omaha for an appearance in the College World Series.

G.K. Young broke through in the second inning with an opposite field home run to left. The power eventually came throughout the lineup, as the Chants bounced back from a 4-1 deficit. Coastal took the lead back on a Seth Lancaster hit to right in the sixth inning.

Coastal followed that up with back-to-back homers by Connor Owings and Zach Remillard, respectively, in the seventh.

Lancaster went 4-4 on the night, scoring twice and driving in a run. Reliever Mike Morrison also pitched a three-inning save to deliver the win.

The win is the first super regional victory in program history for CCU. The Chants can make its first ever appearance in the College World Series with another win on Sunday. Coastal will be the designated home team for game two, which is set for Sunday night at 9:00 ET from Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge.
