Pirates Host Buccaneers Tuesday
March 14, 2011
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Following a 1-2 start to the Conference USA season last weekend against Memphis, East Carolina looks to get back on track as it steps out of league action for a 3:00 p.m. doubleheader against Charleston Southern (11-14) Tuesday.
The Pirates Against The Buccaneers
In the last meeting, at the Winthrop Invitational in Rock Hill, S.C., Leigh SaVoy and Shirley Burleson, who scored three times in the game, hit solo home runs to power the Pirates to the 6-5 win. Brently Bridgeforth earned the victory, throwing four innings and allowing five runs on seven hits. Stephanie Hayes came in for the final three innings and earned her second save of the season.
Earlier in the year, the Pirates defeated the Buccaneers 10-2 in five innings Feb. 12 at the Georgia State Invitational in Atlanta. In that contest, Alison Monce hit a pair of home runs and drove in three. Hayes went the distance in the circle, earning her first win of the campaign as she struck out three.
Career Win No. 100
She is just the second East Carolina or Conference USA pitcher to reach the 100-win plateau. Paisley trails Jenny Parsons (1990-93/102) by two victories for the all-time program record and DePaul’s Lindsay Chouinard (2000-03/108) by eight for the C-USA mark.
Half Are Solo Shutouts
The Streak Continues
This season, East Carolina scores 47.6 percent of the time (10-of-21) when Oshiro reaches base to start an inning.
Wynne Continues To Reach Base
The string started with a bases-loaded walk against St. John’s Feb. 20. Wynne followed with a pinch-hit double at No. 9 Arizona State March 4, a single to the left side at Maryland March 9 and a single up the middle versus Memphis March 12. She reached via a fielding error by the third baseman Sunday against the Tigers.
Just Looking, Thanks
