Texas took the early lead in game one with two runs in the top of the first. While that may intimidate some teams, East Carolina answered and took the lead with three runs of its own in the bottom of the first. Another three runs in the bottom of the fourth and one run in the bottom of the fifth extended the lead to five for the Pirates.
The Longhorns started to battle back in the top of the sixth with two runs and they brought one more in during the bottom of the seventh, but the Pirates canceled that out with one of their own. It looked like Texas was gaining momentum with two runs in the eighth, but East Carolina shut that down with five runs in the bottom of the eighth to put the win out of reach for Texas.
Today, Texas will look for revenge in game two to force a third. A win for East Carolina will send Texas on a long trip home empty-handed.
