Travis Watkins was 3-for-5 with two RBIs, a double and a run for ECU. Jeff Nelson was 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs for the Pirates. The duo had half of ECU's hits as the Pirates outhit the visitors, 12-11.

Eric Tyler had a hit and two RBIs in the setback.

Down 7-4 going to the bottom of the sixth, ECU evened the score as Luke Bolka came home on a balk, Nelson was driven in on a sacrifice fly by Parker Lamm and Watkins' double brought in Yorgen.

A double by Nelson started the Pirates in the fifth. Lamm followed with a sacrifice bunt. With two out, Watkins walked and Bryce Harman was hit by a pitch. Tyler's single up the middle brought in two runs to tie the score at 4.

The Pirates began their half of the third with singles by Bolka and Nelson. Lamm sacrificed to move the runners up. Yorgen's infield single brought in Bolka to cut Elon's lead to 2-1. An infield single by Watkins brought in the tying run.

Danny Lynch had three hits and three RBIs for the Phoenix. Tyler McVicar had two hits and three RBIs. Liam O'Regan collected a pair of hits for Elon.
