Trailing 4-3 in the bottom of the 10th, Kyle Kirk led off the stanza with a single down the left field line, but was wiped out on a Caleb Barker fielder’s choice.

Matt Hernandez (3-1) got the win in relief, working a scoreless 10th with two walks.

With the score tied at three in the top of the 10th, Dylan Brown belted a leadoff home run giving ECU a 4-3 lead before the Cougars roared back for the series sweep.

For the first time in the series, the Pirates jumped out to an early lead, scoring a pair of runs on four hits in the top of the first.

With Jack Reinheimer standing on third and Brown on second, Ben Fultz singled to right with two outs scoring Reinheimer. Chase McDonald followed with another two-out base knock scoring Brown for a 2-0 lead.
