April 6, 2002

Final Stats

GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina rapped out 14 hits and took advantage of six Cougar errors to take an 11-4 win over the fifth-ranked University of Houston baseball team on Saturday in the second game of a Conference USA series at Harrington Field.

The series wraps up at 11 a.m. (Central) game Sunday. Sunday's game time was moved up one hour to its current slot from the original schedule.

With the loss, the Cougars (22-10) dropped their second straight game to the Pirates and fell into a tie for second place in C-USA play at 7-4. It was also UH's first C-USA series loss of the year. ECU improved to 23-6-1 overall and 6-4-1 in league play in handing UH its worst loss and tying LSU for the most runs by a UH opponent this season.

ECU starter Davey Penney scattered seven hits and three runs (only one earned) with five strikeouts in improving to 5-1. Cougar starter Keith Whatley dropped his second straight game in falling to 6-3 after allowing two unearned runs with three walks in only 0.1 innings of work.

All but two starters collected a hit for ECU, which rapped out 14 hits in the game. Darryl Lawhorn went 4-for-4 with three runs and two RBIs to lead the Pirates with Ryan Jones, Adam Stephens, Luke Cherry and Ben Sanderson adding two hits apiece.

UH outfielder Michael Bourn went 2-for-2 with three runs, while Jesse Crain and Thanos Papavasiliou each went 2-for-4 with an RBI to lead the Cougars.

UH took advantage of a walk and two errors by Penny to score the game's first run without the benefit of a hit. After leading off the game with a walk, Bourn reached second on Penny's first errant throw of the inning and moved to third base.

Chris Synder then lined a shot that Penny snared, but the ECU pitcher's toss to third base to retire Bourn was wide, allowing the Humble, Texas, native to score easily and give UH a 1-0 lead.

 

 

ECU responded in the bottom of the inning with an unearned run of its own when Ryan Jones scored on an errant UH throw in the infield. After three straight walks loaded the bases, Stephens lifted a sacrifice fly into right field to score Lawhorn and give the Pirates a 2-1 lead.

In the second inning, the Pirates took control of the game with four more runs, thanks to three hits and two more UH errors.

The Cougars pulled to within four runs when Bourn scored on Anthony Scalise's RBI-groundout in the third inning but that would be as close as UH would get for the rest of the game.

ECU added two more runs in the third inning on RBI singles from Sanderson and Jones.

The Cougars scored a run in the sixth inning on Crain's RBI single, but ECU added three more runs in the bottom of the inning on Lawhorn's RBI-double, UH's fifth error of the night and Stephens' RBI-single.

Papavasiliou plated the Cougars' final run in the game with a double to left center to plate Crain in the ninth inning.
