Pirate Baseball Quick Notes (04/01/02)

After hitting a tough stretch of games in mid-March, East Carolina won five games in a row last week. Included in that span was a 9-5 win over Old Dominion, a 2-0 win over Campbell, and a three-game Conference USA sweep on the road at UAB.

In the victory over Campbell, Pirate pitchers WILL BRINSON and GREG BUNN combined for a two-hit shutout.

During the five-game winning streak, ECU's pitching staff combined for an ERA of 2.35 while the Pirates as a team batted .304.

Junior college transfer ADAM STEPHENS has taken over the starting DH role with his hot bat. Stephens batted .500 (5-for-10) with two doubles and a team-high six RBIs while drawing six walks during the stretch.

True freshman GREG BUNN, a right-hander, made a bid to become the team's closer as he recorded two saves during the week — against Campbell and UAB. Bunn has an ERA of 1.23 through eight appearances this season.

Senior third baseman BRYANT WARD had three doubles in the UAB series to move into a tie for third on ECU's career doubles list (49).

Third baseman DARRYL LAWHORN still has some of the loftiest slugging numbers by a freshman, not only in C-USA, but in the nation. He leads the league in total bases (86), home runs (12) and RBIs (34), while batting .398 (sixth in C-USA). The 12 home runs are just one shy of the school's single-season record by a freshman.  Lawhorn has also swiped a team-high seven bases.
