NORFOLK, VA-- Old Dominion (25-15) travels to Greenville, NC. to play East Carolina (24-12) Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Clark-LeClair Stadium.

Senior outfielder Mike Zahm leads ODU in hitting at .409 and ranks sixth in the CAA. He leads the CAA in RBI with 51 and doubles with 18. Designated hitter David Burns is second in RBI with 50, while secondbaseman Chris Keenan is second in the CAA in runs scored with 49 and catcher Tyler Belcher ranks third in the CAA in doubles with 16.

This is the first meeting between ODU and ECU since the 2002 season. The two teams split those two games, ODU winning in Greenville, 9-6 behind the pitching of Justin Verlander, and ECU won at the Bud, 9-5. ECU and ODU also met in the 1999 CAA Championship in Kinston, NC. The Pirates are now members of Conference USA.
