Complete Notes - Games 44-46 - at Coastal Carolina

The Games

     The Liberty University Flames (27-16, 8-4 Big South) begin on a seven-game road trip by traveling to Conway, S.C., for a three-game Big South Conference series with the nationally-ranked Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, Friday-Sunday, at Charles Watson Stadium/Vrooman Field. The series will open Friday night with a night contest starting at 6 p.m., followed by day games on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Series Against Coastal Carolina
     The Flames and Chanticleers will meet for the 57th time on the baseball diamond when they square off on Friday evening. Coastal Carolina holds a 31-25 advantage all-time since the two teams' initial meeting in 1983.

     Last season, the Flames took two-of-three from Chanticleers at Worthington Stadium. Liberty took the opening game, 6-4 and the final game of the series, 4-3, in 12 innings, while Coastal Carolina captured the middle game, 8-6, in 10 innings.

The Last Time Out
     Liberty plated eight second-inning runs on nine hits as the Flames defeated the George Mason Patriots, 13-5, Tuesday afternoon at Worthington Stadium.

     Liberty had 20 hits in game, the first time the Flames reached the mark since their school record-breaking 28 hits against Richmond, Feb. 16, at the Crab House Shootout in Charleston, S.C.

     The Flames sent 12 hitters to the plate, erupting for eight runs in the second inning. The eight-run outburst is the biggest in an inning for Liberty this season. At one point during the frame, the Flames had six consecutive hits, including five straight run producers.

Flames on the Radio

Games will air live on WWMC 90.9 FM "The Light" and on the World Wide Web at both www.LibertyFlames.com and www.thelightonline.com. The station plans to broadcast Tuesday's contest at Virginia Tech.
