Regular Saturday ace Ryan Williams came to the rescue for East Carolina Wednesday evening, hurling 4 1/3 perfect innings and giving the Pirates a chance to complete an 11-4 comeback victory over Elon at Latham Park.

Junior first baseman Chase McDonald belted a pair of home runs and senior third baseman/outfielder Jay Cannon and senior second baseman Bryan Bass also knocked round-trippers as ECU overcame a 4-2 deficit to snap a six-game losing streak.

The Pirates improved to 12-14 with the victory, while Elon fell to 14-11.

Sophomore leftfielder Blaine Bower had three-run homer in the bottom of the second that gave the Phoenix a 4-2 lead that lasted until Cannon pulled ECU even with a two-run blast in the fifth.

With the score knotted, Williams, a junior righthander, took over the Pirate pitching chores from freshman lefthander Nick Durazo with two outs in the fifth and a runner on third.

Williams proceeded to retire the next 13 batters while the Pirates scored three runs in the sixth, one in the seventh and three more in the ninth to nail down the badly needed triumph.

Junior pinch-hitter/third baseman Zach Houchins helped ECU's cause by going 2-for-3 with 3 RBIs, including a two-run double in the sixth that gave the Pirates the lead for good.

ECU will try to get a winning streak going when it hosts North Carolina Central on Friday at 6 p.m.
