ECU falls to Wichita State in AAC tournament


CLEAR WATER, Fla. No. 4 seed Wichita State scored 11 runs in the sixth and seventh innings to defeat No. 1 seed East Carolina 14-4 in a winners' game of the American Athletic Conference Baseball Championship Thursday afternoon at BayCare Ballpark.

The Pirates (41-14) will face No. 8 seed Rice in an elimination game Friday at 1 p.m. The winner will advance to the semi-finals of the tournament on Saturday.

Tommy LaPour (6-3) earned the win after pitching 6.2 innings and allowing three runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts. Chris Kahler (1-1) took the loss, giving up three runs (two earned) on two hits in 1.1 work frames.

Josh Livingston drove in seven runs for the Shocker (31-27) offense, while Lane Haworth had three runs scored and three RBI. Ryley Johnson, Jacob Spreeuw And Dixon Williams each recorded a pair of hits to go along with a two-RBI performance Ryan McCrystal.

Wichita State started its offense in the top of the first inning when Haworth drew a walk and eventually scored on a two-out RBI single by Jaden Gustafson. The Shockers loaded the bases on a hit by Mauricio Millan, but Jacob Jenkins-Cowart made a spectacular grab into right field to end the inning and keep the deficit at one.

East Carolina responded in the bottom of the inning. Johnson ripped a leadoff single just inside the line past first base before McCrystal fired the first pitch of his at-bat and crashed it 400 feet over the wall in right field to put the Purple and Gold up 2-1.

Williams increased the Pirates advantage in the bottom of the fourth inning by smashing a solo shot into the palm trees over the right field fence to make it 3-1. However, Wichita State took the lead in the top of the sixth inning and scored seven runs, including six on a three-run double and three-run homerun. Livingston then extended the Shocker's dominance to 12-3 in the top of the seventh inning with a grand slam.

After Wichita State scored two more runs in the top of the ninth, Nathan Chrismon ripped a 2-1 pitch against the center wall. The fielder was unable to keep control of the ball and Chrismon came all the way around to score on what was ruled an error that would account for the final score.
