|Justin Sizemore's home run helped Liberty advance to today's semifinals|
Now the Flames must face the hurdle that they have yet to overcome, Coastal Carolina. Today's game is scheduled for 1pm, and Liberty must beat the Chanticleers twice in order to advance to Saturday's Championship. The Flames have lost 20 consecutive games to the Chanticleers dating back to the 2008 Big South Tournament. Coastal has ended Liberty's season 3 times during that stretch. Coastal has won the Big South Baseball Championship 6 consecutive seasons and 10 of the past 12. Not to mention their current 17 game Big South Tournament win streak.
Talk about having your back against the wall.
