Greenville - East Carolina head coach Billy Godwin said earlier in the week that sooner or later his team would lose a ball game and for much of Friday night it looked like that day had come for the Pirates who trailed Memphis by as many as 6 before rallying for a 12-10 win.
ECU shortstop Dale Maulenhauer cranked a three run homer to give the Pirates the lead in the bottom of the 8th to complete the comeback. The Pirates have now won 11 in a row and 15 out of 16. They also got off to a 1-0 start in C-USA play. Game two of the three game set is Saturday at 6pm.
