Chanticleers lead early, knock off Seahawks

WILMINGTON (UNCW) - The UNCW baseball team fell behind early and never caught number 25 Coastal Carolina who took care of the Seahawks 5-2 at Brooks Field Tuesday night.

The loss was the fourth in the last five games for the Seahawks who fell to 29-12 on the season.

The Chanticleers (31-13) took an early lead scoring one run in each of the third and fourth innings before putting the game out of reach with a three-run seventh that increased the lead to 5-0.

Zach Remillard and Casey Schroeder each homered in the win for Coastal Carolina while UNCW struggled offensively. The Seahawks finished the game just 3-for-21 with runners in scoring position.

Mark Scalf's club is back on the field Wednesday night with a trip to Campbell. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30.
