Rice erupted for five runs in the sixth inning and added two more in the seventh to overcome deficits and capture an 8-7 Conference USA victory over East Carolina Sunday morning at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

With the win, the Owls (23-11, 6-3 C-USA) claimed the weekend series two games to one. The Pirates had squared the series with a 13-inning, 3-2 triumph on Saturday after Rice took Friday's series opener 3-0.

Junior designated hitter Michael Aquino paced the Owls offensively with a pair of doubles, including a two-bagger in the top of the seventh that drove in two runs for the final 8-7 margin.

The highlight of ECU's attack was junior outfielder Dylan Brown's three-run home in the bottom of the second that gave the Pirates a 3-1 lead.

Rice reliever Zech Lemond (4-1), a sophomore righthander, got credit for the victory after blanking ECU on four hits over the final 3 2/3 innings.

Jake Harris (1-3) logged the final three innings for ECU and was charged with the loss. The senior southpaw surrendered four hits and the decisive run.

ECU (15-17, 1-5 C-USA) will bus to Raleigh on Tuesday to face N.C. State at 6 p.m. The Wolfpack defeated the Pirates 6-1 last Tuesday in Greenville.
