Pirates power past UConn

GREENVILLE — Charlie Yorgen and Bryce Harman hit home runs in support of winning pitcher Jacob Wolfe as East Carolina topped Connecticut 5-2 on Sunday at Clark-LeClair Stadium to take the American Athletic Conference series two games to one and maintain a tie for first in the league standings with Houston.

Yorgen had a two-run homer in the bottom of the first for a 2-0 ECU lead. It was the third roundtripper of his sophomore season.

After the Huskies (29-20, 8-10 AAC) tied the score at 2, Harman launched his fifth circuit clout of the year in the bottom of the second to put the Pirates ahead to stay at 3-2. ... Story & pictures...
