GREENVILLE East Carolina topped UNC-Wilmington 9-6 on Tuesday night after leading the Seahawks 8-1 through six innings at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

The Pirates (17-8) got a quality start from Jacob Wolfe before Joe Ingle picked up his fifth save.

Eric Tyler, who had a school record eight RBIs in a 13-0 win over Jacksonville on Saturday, stayed hot as he went 4-for-4 with a double and a run driven in.

Zack Mozingo continued to produce with a 2-for-4 night that included an RBI and left him with a .400 average. Parker Lamm and Travis Watkins each had two hits and an RBI.

The hosts held a 14-12 lead in hits.

Bryce Harman put ECU ahead to stay with a single to right in the second inning that scored Tyler. Dwanya Williams-Sutton scored on a sacrifice bunt by Kirk Morgan in the second for a 2-0 Pirates lead. Parker Lamm got an infield single that scored Harman as ECU went ahead 3-0 in the second.

After the Seahawks (15-7) closed within 3-1 with a run in the top of the third, the Pirates answered in the bottom of the frame as Mozingo singled and later came home on a wild pitch.

Mozingo and Tyler had RBI singles to extend the lead to 6-1 in the fourth. Kirk Morgan doubled in the fifth and scored on a balk after a grounder by Turner Brown moved him to third as the Pirates pushed the lead to 7-1.

Travis Watkins homered to left in the sixth for an 8-1 ECU lead.

Nick Feight had a two-run double in a three-run eighth for UNCW.

An RBI double by Garrett Brooks gave the Pirates a 9-5 lead in the eighth.

The Seahawks scored an unearned run in the ninth before Ingle got the final out on a grounder to first. Ingle didn't yield a hit, walking one as he struck out three in an inning and one-third.

Wolfe (3-2) went six and one-third innings. He allowed six hits and two runs, both earned, while striking out five without a walk.

"Jacob Wolfe went out there and was Jacob Wolfe and then Joe Ingle shut it down," said ECU coach Cliff Godwin. "We gave up some runs but a win is a win. We'll get ready for Houston now."

The Pirates begin American Athletic Conference play at home against the Cougars with a three-game series that starts Friday at 6:30 p.m.
