CONWAY, S.C. — Coastal Carolina (RV) scored on a bases loaded hit-by-pitch in the bottom of the eighth to answer a late rally by the College of Charleston and edge the Cougars, 8-7, in a back-and-forth midweek clash on Tuesday evening at Springs Brooks Stadium.

The Cougars took the early lead through a two-out, three-run homer by Brody Hopkins that put Charleston ahead, 3-0, in the second inning. Coastal Carolina struck back with a three-run third before opening a 6-3 lead with one in the fourth and two in the fifth. Ari Sechopoulos launched his first of two homers, a solo shot, in the sixth as both teams plated one in the frame.

The Cougars would erase a three-run deficit on a Tanner McCallister RBI single and a two-run bomb by Sechopoulos in the eighth to tie the game at 7-7. Coastal scored the winning run on a bases-loaded hit-by-pitch in the bottom of the frame following a single, an error and a walk.

Senior first baseman Ari Sechopoulos reached base four times with a single, a walk and two home runs while driving in three of the Cougars’ seven runs. The multi-homer game marks the first of his career and pushes his career long ball total to 20.
