GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The ECU baseball team made it 10 wins in a row on Sunday completing a sweep of South Florida with a 6-3 win.

Jake Hunter took a perfect game into the 6th. He only allowed one run on one hit with 7 strike outs.

Zach Agnos came in to relieve Hunter and picked up the win. He also went 2 for 4.

Alec Makarewicz delivered the big blast in the 8th. A 3-run homer for A-Mak as the Pirates went on to win 6-2.

Ben Terwilliger was lights out for 3 innings to get the save. His second this season.
