Conway, S.C. – Dock Doyle homered twice and drove in five runs to power No. 18 Coastal Carolina to a 17-4 victory over UAlbany on Sunday, March 23 in the final game of a weekend series at Watson Stadium.

Coastal Carolina (18-4) scored in each of the first four innings of the game to jump out to a 14-1 lead. Doyle accounted for both runs in the first inning by driving in Adam Rice with a single up the middle and later coming around on a fielding error.

UAlbany (4-14-1) cut the deficit to 2-1 in the top of the second. Senior Mike Konstanty led off the frame with a single. After advancing to third on a single by junior Sean Donovan and a wild pitch, Konstanty scored as senior Tom Zink hit into a double play.

The Chanticleers responded with three runs in the second, five in the third and four in the fourth. David Sappelt keyed the second inning with a two-run double down the left field line and later tallied a run on a sacrifice by David Anderson. Following back-to-back walks to start the third inning, Sappelt blasted a three-run homer to right field to give Coastal Carolina an 8-1 lead. After a strikeout, Doyle and Anderson connected for consecutive home runs around a UAlbany pitching change. In the fourth frame, Doyle gave the Chanticleers a 14-1 advantage with a three-run blast.

Coastal Carolina registered its final three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning on a wild pitch, a balk and a run-scoring single by Cody Wheeler. The Great Danes plated three runs of their own with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Freshman Jamie Liebowitz drove in classmate Nate Touissant with a single to right field. Following a single by freshman Jim Gaudet, junior center fielder Dave West knocked in Liebowitz with a single through the left side. Junior designated hitter Ryan drove in the final run of the contest with a single to center to bring in Gaudet.

Junior Nate Novak recorded his fourth loss of the season, allowing nine runs on seven hits in two and one-third innings. Dan Lombardozzi picked up his first win of the season for the Chanticleers, striking out six over five innings, while allowing just one run on two hits.

West and Konstanty each connected for two hits for the Great Danes. Doyle and Sappelt had identical lines for the Chanticleers, with each recording three hits, five RBI and three runs scored.

UAlbany returns to action in Greensboro, N.C. on Tuesday, March 25 against UNC Greensboro at 6:00 p.m.
