GREENVILLE East Carolina scored two runs in the seventh inning for a 3-2 win over Monmouth on Sunday, completing a three-game series sweep of the Hawks at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

With the Pirates trailing 2-1, Reid Love singled to lead off ECU's half of the seventh. An error by the Monmouth first baseman on a sacrifice bunt by Parker Lamm put runners at first and second. A sacrifice bunt by Eric Tyler moved both runners into scoring position. Bryce Harman's sacrifice fly tied the score at 2 and an RBI single up the middle by Travis Watkins scored Lamm with what proved to be the winning run.

The Pirates took a 1-0 lead in the third after Luke Bolka and Hunter Allen started the frame with singles. Love's sacrifice bunt preceded a sacrifice fly by Lamm.

The Hawks (0-9) scored unearned runs in the fourth and fifth.

Watkins went 3-for-4 as ECU (8-5) collected eight hits. Charlie Yorgen hit his fourth double of the season.

Love didn't allow a hit in four scoreless innings of relief, picking up the win to even his record at 1-1. He had four strikeouts and no walks.

David Lucroy started and went five innings for the Pirates. He yielded four hits while walking two and fanning four.

ECU hosts Campbell on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. The Camels (13-2) completed a sweep of Bowling Green on Sunday for their 10th straight win.
