Weekly Pirate Baseball Notes (04/15/02)

East Carolina won two-of-three at Charlotte over the weekend, thanks largely to noteworthy hitting and pitching.

Pirate first baseman DARRYL LAWHORN, who leads the nation's freshmen in home runs with 13, extended his hitting streak to 13 games. He went 9-for-21 (.429) last week and has 22 multi-hit games on the season.

In last week's NCAA statistics, ECU's pitching staff ranked 14th nationally with a 3.39 ERA. After this past week's play, that figure has dipped to 3.37. The Pirates have recorded 271 strikeouts in 323 innings pitched and have walked just 101.

Sophomore right-hander SCOTT GREENE, who had not pitched since the 2000 season due to a shoulder injury, made a successful return to the mound when he started against Duke last Wednesday. Greene held the Blue Devils to just one run and three hits over five innings and struck out four to gain the win.

ECU has already established a new season-high for home game attendance as 38,327 fans have packed Harrington Field for the school's first 23 home games. That mark is likely to get a substantial boost this week when the Pirates host in-state nemesis North Carolina (Wednesday) and Conference USA rival South Florida (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
