BSB: Camels complete sweep of VMI behind Cedano's 9 K's

Posted April 21, 2013

Hector Cedano struck out a career-high nine to lead Campbell in an 8-1 win, completing a Big South series sweep over VMI Sunday at Jim Perry Stadium.

Campbell improves to 35-8 overall and 14-4 in Big South play with the win, its fourth in a row, while VMI falls to 18-25 and 5-10 in conference games.

On Saturday, Michael Felton gave Campbell a walk-off win for the second straight day, driving in the winning run with a base hit in the bottom of the ninth, defeating VMI 4-3 to clinch the series. The Camels took Friday’s opener 2-1 over the Keydets on Blake Boyce’s game ending RBI double in the bottom of the ninth.

Cedano, a junior lefthander from Miami, Fla., fanned nine, walked three, and allowed a run on four hits in eight innings, improving to 8-2 on the season. Cedano’s eight wins is the fourth most in CU single season history.

Ryan Thompson finished off the game, getting out of a bases loaded jam in the ninth after Cedano exited with two on and none out.

VMI starter Reed Garrett took the loss, falling to 2-6 on the season after giving up six runs, three earned on seven hits with two walks and a strikeout. Campbell Henkel and Miles McQuaig also surrendered a run apiece for the Keydets, who used five hurlers in the loss.

The Camels kicked off the first with back to back RBI singles from David Olson and Elijah Trail. Olson later scored on a VMI error, giving CU a 3-0 lead.

Another Keydet miscue in the second led to another Campbell with none out. Olson then plated Brent Graham on a RBI groundout, making it 5-0 Camels after two complete.

Campbell added a run in the bottom of the seventh on a Trail sacrifice fly, and two in the eighth on Graham’s triple and Felton’s base hit.

Graham ended the day 3-for-3 with four runs scored and a RBI, while Felton and Trail posted two hits each. Olson and Trail both drove in two, while Colby Fox scored a run.

Brandon Diamond scored a run for VMI after drawing a walk in the ninth. Matt Winn and Eric Mayers both reached twice in the loss on a hit and a walk.

The Camels will host North Carolina Central (April 23, 6:00 p.m.) and UNC Greensboro (April 24, 6:00 p.m.) next week at Jim Perry Stadium.
