ECU wraps up baseball season
HOUSTON, TEX. -- Down by four runs through six innings of play, third-seeded East Carolina University scored three runs in both the seventh and eighth innings as the Pirates finished pod play of the 2013 Conference USA Baseball Championship with an 8-7 win over No. 2 seed Southern Miss last Saturday evening at Rice University’s Reckling Park.

With the win, East Carolina wrapped up its 2013 season improving to 31-26.

Second baseman Bryan Bass, shortstop Jack Reinheimer, right fielder Jay Cannon and centerfielder Philip Clark had two hits each to pace a 12-hit East Carolina offense.

Reliever Andy Smithmyer (3-1) picked up the victory after striking out four and giving up just one hit in 1.2 innings of work out of the bullpen.

Drew Reynolds, who went 1-for-4 with an RBI as the Pirates’ starting designated hitter came on the ninth and earned his 14th save of the year.

“The last 20 games, we played .700  baseball,’’ said ECU coach Billy Godwin, a Nash County native. “I was disappointed with the way we came out the first two games (of the tournament).

“I told them -- we talk about pride and courage all the time in our program -- that this is what we had to play for. I was really proud of their effort. It would have been easy to fold when we were down and they battled back, which is what they’ve done the last 20 games or so.

“It’s just unfortunate -- I met with our seniors today. I said I wish we could start all over with where we’re at now and how we’re playing now. I think we’d have a lot different outcome. We’re not in the business of looking back, we just gotta look forward.”
