The Greenville All-Stars walked away with the Babe Ruth 15U Eastern North Carolina State Championship on Tuesday night, winning 22-1 over fellow local Pitt County and taking the tournament’s title with two straight victories over their rival.

“It’s a good feeling. These guys have worked hard. Most of them have been playing since February, so we’re going to take some time off and get going to Florida in a week or so,” Greenville head coach Tyler Warren said, referring to the team’s next challenge at the regional level.

Marcus Wilkins pitched four of five innings for Greenville, giving up only one hit. Daszion Bell led Greenville with three hits on the night. 

Greenville took advantage of six Pitt County errors, along with capitalizing on mistakes at the plate including nine walks.

The bats were explosive for Greenville, racking up seven-run innings not once, but twice. 

“”The boys are swinging the bats really well.” Warren said. “The defense only had one error all tournament, so they have been playing great also.”

The Greenville scoring outburst began in the second. Up 2-0, Grayson Bauer stepped up to bat with the bases loaded and singled to score Lee Watson to increase the lead to 3-0. Later in the inning after Greenville made its way through the order, Bell hit a single to score Watson, Bauer and Matthew Wacker to increase the lead to 6-0.

Wade Jarman then singled to score Bell and Carson Everett.

In the bottom of the first, May and outfielder Michael Allen collided while running for a pop fly. The two collided and fell to the ground. While May quickly rebounded, Allen remained on the ground for 20 minutes. He was escorted off the field on a stretcher by paramedics.

Warren told The Daily Reflector it was believed Allen could had suffered a broken wrist.

“He just came back from that in November,” the coach said. “He broke the same wrist. It also looked like he had a cut on his eye, so we’ll take a look at him in a little while.”

One thing that stands out with first-year coach Joe Dooley about the East Carolina basketball team’s big men is their potential.

It was easy to think back to East Carolina football’s successful run in Conference USA during Saturday night’s game against Houston at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.

The first reminder was Houston being the visiting team. The Cougars occupied the same visiting sideline Dec. 5, 2009, for a…

East Carolina’s football offense started too slow and delivered too little again on Saturday night in a 42-20 beating at the hands of visiting Houston.

On Saturday night, East Carolina passed the halfway point in the college football season amid the same uncertainty that has loomed around Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium the last few years.

Q: You lead the Pirates with 7.5 sacks this season. Does one stand out the most?

Q: What is your favorite holiday?
