A fourth inning single was all that kept sophomore righthander Jeff Hoffman from recording a no-hitter as the junior righthander hogtied North Carolina Central's batters for nine innings to lead East Carolina to a 3-0 victory Friday evening at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

Hoffman faced only 32 batters, firing 78 strikes in 120 pitches while fanning seven in the course of authoring the complete-game shutout.

Hoffman got all the offensive support he needed when junior third baseman Zach Houchins stroked an RBI double in the bottom of the first.

Houchins, who was 3-for-4, factored into all three of the Pirates' runs. His RBI triple in the bottom of third boosted the lead to 2-0, and he finished the day's scoring one batter later when junior first baseman Chase McDonald brought him home with a single.

ECU improved to 13-14 with the victory, its second in a row. The outcome ended a nine-game winning streak for the Eagles, who fell to 18-10.

The Pirates will try to put together their first three-game winning streak since the first week of March when they bus to Durham today to reciprocate NCCU's visit to Greenville. ECU and the Eagles will face off at 3 p.m. at Durham Athletic Park.
