Coastal Carolina Stays Alive in CWS

After dropping the series opener to Arizona on Monday night, Coastal Carolina bounced back with a 5-4 win Tuesday to force a Game 3 rubber match in the 2016 College World Series. The Chanticleers’ tournament run thus continues for one final game against a Wildcats club that had given up just six runs in Omaha before Game 2…

Never mind that the Chants were the 2016 Big South regular season and conference tournament champions. They beat last year’s CWS champs Virginia, 5-4, back in February. They beat Duke, 10-6, and Ohio State, 3-2, a week later. They beat North Carolina, 6-3, in Chapel Hill. All before the postseason had even begun—to say nothing of their tournament triumphs over NC State (twice), LSU (twice in 24 hours), Florida, Texas Tech and TCU (twice in 24 hours).

The Chants can play, especially with their backs against the wall, and with the win, they’ve gifted us all a deciding matchup between two of the most entertaining college baseball teams in recent memory.
