STORRS, CT Garrett Brooks walked in the top of the 10th inning and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Eric Tyler as the Pirates took an American Athletic Conference series with a 4-3 win at Connecticut on Sunday.

ECU topped the Huskies 7-3 on Friday before the hosts evened the series by the same score on Saturday.

Pirates coach Cliff Godwin brought Jacob Wolfe to the mound in the bottom of the 10th and he retired the Huskies (25-15, 6-6 AAC) in order for his first save.

UConn used four hits in the bottom of the ninth to score two runs and tie the score at 3. The Pirates ended the ninth with a tagout at the plate to prevent the winning run.

Jeff Nelson made the throw from right field and Travis Watkins applied the tag. Nelson went to right after Bailey Sugg pinch hit for Parker Lamm in the top of the ninth.

After Brooks walked, Charlie Yorgen had a one-out single down the right field line that allowed Brooks to go to third.

Tyler's fly to left brought in the deciding run.

The Pirates (24-16, 6-6) never trailed, taking a 1-0 lead in the fifth and going on top 3-0 with a pair of runs in the seventh.

Brooks doubled with two out in the fifth and scored when Hunter Allen followed with a single through the right side.

Lamm walked with one away in the seventh and Brooks had an infield hit. A walk to Allen loaded the bases and Lamm scored on a wild pitch.

Brooks was out at home on a fielder's choice but Allen subsequently stole home for a 3-0 ECU lead.

Reid Love turned in a quality start for the Pirates, going six and one-third innings. He allowed six hits, one earned run and struck out eight while walking two.

Evan Voliva (1-0), the fifth of six ECU pitchers, picked up the win.

Getting two hits each for the Pirates were Allen, Yorgen and Brooks.

ECU hosts N.C. State (21-16) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The Wolfpack dropped the deciding matchup in a three-game series at Notre Dame, 7-2, on Sunday.

The Pirates lost 7-0 to NCSU in Raleigh on March 3.
