With the weather on his side, East Carolina’s Ryan Williams shut down the Boston College offense on Friday night.
Pitching led the way for the ECU baseball team for the second straight day at the Keith LeClair Classic, and the Pirates beat BC 2-1 at Clark-LeClair Stadium. Williams, a transfer from West Valley (Calif.) College making his second ECU start, didn’t allow an earned run in seven innings. He tossed 104 pitches, giving up six hits with five strikeouts and one walk.
The Pirates (2-3) never trailed during the chilly, slightly damp night, tallying single runs in the third and fourth innings for a 2-0 cushion. The Eagles (1-3) scored a run on a throwing error in the top of the sixth and had the bases loaded with one out in the eighth, but Pirate closer Drew Reynolds got out of the jam and retired the side in the ninth for his first save of the year.
