Big inning lifts Memphis

GREENVILLE — The speed of Memphis center fielder Darien Tubbs was a difference maker in an American Athletic Conference series at East Carolina.

Tubbs tracked down a drive by Garrett Brooks for what ECU coach Cliff Godwin called a SportsCenter Top 10 play to keep the tying run from scoring in the bottom of the ninth in a 3-2 Tigers win on Saturday.

On Sunday, Tubbs had a three-run inside the park homer in the seventh inning as Memphis took its second win over the Pirates, 4-2. ... Story & picture...
