Weekly Pirate Baseball Notes (04/08/02)

East Carolina extended its winning streak to nine games with Friday and Saturday wins over No. 5 Houston before finally falling to the Cougars on Sunday. It was the Pirates' first loss since being swept at home by Texas Christian the weekend of March 22-24.

True freshman first baseman DARRYL LAWHORN reached base in each of his first 10 plate appearances in the Houston series and finished the weekend with a 7-for-10 performance, two doubles, and five RBIs. His seventh-inning single in Friday night's 5-4 win drove in the game's tying and go-ahead runs.

Lawhorn's solo home run in ECU's 4-0 win over Elon on April 2 was his 13th of the season, tying the school's record for homers by a freshman.

Senior third baseman BRYANT WARD is currently on a nine-game hitting streak, his longest of the season.

True freshman right-hander GREG BUNN recorded his third save of the past two weeks in Friday night's 5-4 win over Houston. Bunn has allowed only one run and three hits in 10 relief appearances this season. He has struck out 14 of 38 batters he has faced this year and has a 0.96 ERA.

Junior right-hander DAVEY PENNY scattered seven hits, all singles, while allowing only one earned run and striking out five over eight innings in ECU's 11-4 Saturday win over Houston.
