GREENVILLE — East Carolina outhit North Carolina A&T 15-5 in an 11-2 nonconference win on Tuesday afternoon.

The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday but was moved up due to the threat of severe weather today.

Charlie Yorgen had a career-high four hits as the Pirates improved to 4-0.

ECU scored six runs in the bottom of the first and never trailed the 0-4 Aggies.

Parker Lamm walked to start the initial frame and Yorgen followed with a bunt single. A double steal put runners at second and third. Travis Watkins walked to load the bases before Bryce Harman delivered a triple to left center for a 3-0 Pirates lead.

Dwanya Williams-Sutton had an RBI double with one out for a 4-0 advantage. A run-scoring triple by Garrett Brooks put ECU ahead, 5-0.

Brooks scored on a wild pitch.

Morgan allowed runs in the second and third before Evan Voliva tossed two scoreless innings. Sam Lanier, Chris Holba, Matt Bridges and Cam Colmore each worked an inning. ECU pitchers recorded 11 strikeouts and issued one walk. The Pirates were errorless in the field.
