Justin Lilly started for the Camels and retired two ECU batters on strikeouts in two innings. Matt Martinez surrendered a third-inning hit before Smith took the mound.

Pirate hurler Josh Dowdy threw a career-high 62/3 innings during his second career start. Former Eastern Wayne standout Brett Butts made his fourth appearance of the season and closed out the Campbell seventh with a strikeout.

Senior left-hander Jason Neitz allowed one run on two hits and fanned three Camel batters.

Ryan Tousley paced the ECU offense with two hits in four plate appearances. Dale Mollenhauer, Corey Kemp and Ryan Wood each supplied a hit.
