Bryant Packard hit a home run on the game’s first pitch and four Pirate hurlers combined on a two-hit shutout as ECU knocked off Elon, 3-0 Wednesday night. 

Jake Agnos got the win. The sophomore lefty pitched four innings, striking out four while giving up just one hit. Davis Kirkpatrick gave up just a single hit in his two innings of work. Ryan Ross picked up the hold, while Alec Burleson collected the save. In all the Pirate pitchers struck out 16 batters while giving up just the pair of hits. 

ECU improves to 25-7 with the win. The Pirates are back at home this Friday to open a key, American Athletic Conference series with USF.
