With their small ball approach, the Pirates scratched across three runs and that was more than enough. The Pepperdine lineup, missing starters Nate Johnson, Sam Meyer and Hutton Moyer and still without the services of Aaron Brown (though he is supposed to return to the mound on Sunday), struggled to score runs.
Pepperdine starter Corey Miller was not his sharpest, but he kept the Waves in the game, allowing only two runs in six innings. But for the second consecutive game, Seton Hall’s pitching shut the Waves down. Provost picked up his first win of the season while Brian Gilbert collected his first save. Gilbert pitched the final two frames without giving up a hit.
