Coastal Carolina baseball eliminated from NCAA Tournament
CONWAY, SC (WACH) -- Coastal Carolina has been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament after losing to UConn Sunday in an elimination game 6-5.
The Chanticleers fell into the loser's bracket after being stunned by Washington Saturday 11-6. With their season on the line Sunday, Coastal needed to win against UConn to advance to the Regional Championship.
Trailing by three in the eighth, Coastal rallied back to tie things up at five. However, in the bottom half of the inning, UConn's Christian Fedko smacked a go-ahead solo home run, which would prove to be the game winning run.
Coastal ends the season 43-18.
