ECU softball drops finale

After East Carolina took a 4-0 lead in the first inning Saturday, Wichita State scored 11 of the final 12 runs to claim the rubber match of the series with an 11-5 win in Kansas.

The Pirates drop (21-25, 3-12 American Athletic Conference) was led by Sydney McKinney and Bailee Nickerson, who both went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and 3 RBIs. Tate McClellan also drove in a run.

Whitney Sanford (7-9) was tagged with the loss, surrendering four runs on three hits with four walks and no strikeouts.

The Pirates will play their final non-conference game of the season Tuesday at Duke.

On Friday, ECU snapped a six-game Shockers win streak with a 3-2 victory made possible by Morgan Halo’s dramatic three-run home run in the top of the sixth that overturned a 2-0 Wichita lead. Erin Poepping struck out 10 WSU batters.
