ECU Prepares For Game Three Following Loss To North Carolina

East Carolina University

ECU fell to North Carolina Saturday in the Pirates second game in the Chapel Hill Regional.


"Dustin Ackley lined a one-out single to centerfield off Pirate closer Shane Mathews to score Reid Fronk from second base and cap a dramatic three-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift North Carolina to an 11-10 victory over East Carolina during a pivotal winner's bracket contest at the Chapel Hill Regional Saturday night at Boshamer Stadium."

The Pirates play Western Carolina Sunday. If they win, they will play North Carolina Sunday as well. The championship game is Monday. The tournament is double elimination.
