Starter David Lucroy fanned nine and surrendered only two hits over 6 1/3 innings to help East Carolina cap off a three-game sweep of St. John's with a 7-3 victory Sunday afternoon at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

A redshirt freshman righthander from Umatilla, FL, Lucroy didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning, giving the Pirates an opportunity to take control of the game with a five-run second-inning. The decisive outburst was highlighted by freshman catcher Travis Watkins' two-run single and junior shortstop Jack Reinheimer's two-run double.

Reinheimer boosted the lead to 6-0 with an RBI sacrifice fly in the sixth.

Lucroy kept the Red Storm bottled up until the seventh, when he sandwiched a pair of walks around a balk and a strikeout before being relieved by senior southpaw Jake Harris.

St. John's (1-10) ultimately pushed across all three of its runs in the inning. Two of the scores were charged against Lucroy and one against Harris.

Lucroy (1-1) earned his first collegiate victory with the performance and Harris got his first save of the season after blanking the Red Storm over the final two innings.

St. John's starter Ryan McCormick (0-2) absorbed the loss. The freshman righthander was roughed up for seven hits and five runs over 4 2/3 innings before giving way to a succession of four relievers.

In addition to his second-inning RBIs, Watkins scored a run and went 2-for-3 at the plate for ECU.

Junior outfielder Martin Kelly had two hits and an RBI for the Red Storm.

The Pirates (6-4) will wrap up their season-opening, 11-game home stand with a Tuesday matchup against UNC-Greensboro (5 p.m.) before hitting the road on Wednesday to take on Old Dominion  (3 p.m.).
