Pirates Drop Game Two Against Golden Eagles

A walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth gave Southern Miss a 2-1 victory against East Carolina Saturday afternoon.

The win evened the series after the Pirates took game one 7-5 in 15 innings earlier in the day.

ECU took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning on a Hunter Allen RBI single. That score held until the bottom of the 8th. Connor Barron scored on a wild pitch to tie it at 1. Barron then hit the game-winner an inning later to seal the Southern Miss win.

The series finale is Sunday at noon.
