KEY INNINGS
4th | East Carolina jumps out to a 1-0 lead in the fourth on a double, wild pitch and RBI-single, but it didn't take long for the Pirates' lead to disappear as the Cougars plated a pair in the bottom half thanks to a two-run home run by Julks -- his first of the year -- scoring Jake Scheiner, who walked.

5th | Houston would extend its lead in the fifth with six runs on six hits, highlighted by a three-run home run by Davis -- his third of the year -- scoring Wong and Padgett, who each singled with one out. The inning continued when Julks singled, Triolo doubled and Lockhart walked to load the bases with two outs -- for Bielamowicz, who cleared the bases with a three-run triple to put the Cougars ahead, 8-1.
