    Wow, they only used Holmes for 1 out.

    That may come back to bite them. But that's partly on Beckwith too for letting a guy beat him down 0-2.

    Congrats to the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers!

    Now can someone explain to me why South Carolina has an obsession with fowl names for penises?

    Hats off to the Chants! The better team won.

    Man, I am really excited for AZ baseball next year. Johnson looks like he gets everything from his guys. Cant wait to see what happens as he gets his guys in the program, and makes it his. Bear Down!

    Figured they would either win it all or lose out two in a row, congrats to CCU. Hell of a program, can we steal their coach?

    I just had a bad feeling that if Coastal could force a game three it would be them holding up the trophy. It's crucial to close it out the very next game of you win game one.

    Yeah, it turned into a different series though. Both squads were hurting for pitching, after pitching dominated their success to get here.

    As soon as the game was delayed yesterday, I saw the writing on the wall. Beckwith would pitch with full rest, and without Bannister to match, it was going to be an uphill battle. Dalbec did well, but some costly errors and a few plays that go the other way will cost you in a game like that. I felt much better heading into yesterday's game.

    He's an alum of CCU, but now that CCU has hit their ceiling, he might be prime for the picking.

    CCU won't shell out the cash needed to keep him.

    That coach has been at CCU for 21 years and apparently has put everything he has into that program. On top of that they are now switching to a better conference. I think he stays.

    Yeah, as I posted earlier, unless that extra day got you bannister I liked CC's chances with the extra day.

    And you almost got to beckwith in the 6th. One more batter from this game being even more absurd than it already was.

    Agreed. And when the little things going this way or that way being the deciding factors, then I can only sit back and say that both teams did everything they could. Great to see it end like that.

    Coastal was part of the University of South Carolina at one time, USC-Coastal, then they broke away from them and became independent but still wanted to recognize their roots and chose the Chanticleer as a mascot as a "tribute" to the South Carolina gamecocks.
