The East Carolina baseball team was able to salvage a win against No. 10 Virginia earning a 4-3 victory in the series finally. On the season the Pirates own a 4-2 record, its fourth winning record through six games since the 2004. Despite surrendering 17 runs (six earned) on the weekend, ECU's hurlers boast a Conference USA best 1.56 team ERA.

One of the longest evenings in a Sports Information Director (SID) career is when he/she starts putting together media credential packets for the start of their respective sports seasons. After collecting faxes and emails from our local media contingents over the past month, today was that day for me.
