GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - ECU baseball completed a sweep of USF on Saturday morning 7-1 to earn its fourth straight American Athletic Conference regular season title.

The 15th ranked Pirates wrap up the regular season at 41-15. They will be the top seed in the AAC tournament.

Pirates got it started with a two run ground rule double by Josh Moylan to grab the 2-0 lead and never looked back.

Trey Yesavage went four innings allowing one run on three hits. Garrett Saylor did the rest going five shutout frames allowing just three hits to get the win.

Moylan ended up driving in three in the game and hit a solo shot in the 7th inning to complete the Pirates scoring.
