East Carolina's baseball team features a lineup that can hit from top to bottom. That's exactly what the Pirates did on Wednesday.
The 20th-ranked Pirates got hits from 10 players, with seven ECU players producing mult-hit games, to cruise past UNC-Asheville 21-1 at Clark-LeClair Stadium.
The 21 runs were a season high and the most scored in fourth-year coach Billy Godwin's tenure.
The Pirates (10-2) were ahead 10-2 after three innings, and substituted freely. In fact, reserve right fielder Austin Homan had the biggest day at the plate for ECU -- going 2-for-3 with four RBIs.
Starting catcher Jared Avchen and backup Zach Wright had two hits and two RBIs each, with Wright belting his first home run of the season. Drew Schieber had two hits and thre RBIs, Ryan Wood had two hits and two RBIs, and Dustin Harrington and Corey Thompson had two hits each.
In all, the Pirates had 17 hits -- a nice way to head into a weekend series against UCLA in Greenville.
