WILMINGTON, N.C. (WITN) - East Carolina University baseball scrapped together a pair of runs in the 8th inning to pick up a 3-1 win at Wilmington on Tuesday night.

The Pirates got three shutout innings from Garrett Saylor. He only gave up 2 hits as he picked up his second win of the season.

The Pirates are 11-10 this season.

The Pirates open a 5-game homestand starting Wednesday against Elon at 4 PM.
