Camels take series over GWU with 5-2 Senior Day win

Posted May 4

— Ryan Koopman pitched into the ninth without an earned run and Danny Pardo knocked in two on three hits to lead Campbell over Gardner-Webb 5-2 Sunday at Jim Perry Stadium, clinching the Big South series on Senior Day.

Campbell improved to 31-15 overall and 14-7 in Big South games with the win, while Gardner-Webb fell to 20-25 on the season and 10-13 in conference play.

Koopman (7-1) worked eight innings in the win, allowing just two unearned runs with six hits, two strikeouts and three walks. The senior faced the minimum in four innings, retiring eight in a row from the end of the second into the fifth.

Ryan Thompson entered the game with two on and no one out in the ninth to earn his CU record 12th save, allowing a hit with a strikeout.

Erik Heiligenstadt (3-6) took the loss, surrendering five runs on 10 hits with three strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings pitched. Brad Haymes worked the final 4 1/3, allowing only one hit with two punchouts.

Eight of Campbell’s nine position starters recorded a hit in the win, led by Pardo with a 3-for-4 day, driving in two. The freshman has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games, going for multiple hits in seven of those outings.
John Reilly also picked up two hits, scoring two runs for the Camels.

After Ryan Hodge scored on a passed ball in the top of the second, Elijah Trail knotted the game at 1-apeice with a double down the line, scoring Matt Parrish, who led off the frame with a base hit.

The Camels took a 2-1 lead in the third, leading off the inning with three straight base hits, the third, an infield single from Steven Leonard to score John Reilly from third.

With two away in the fourth, the Camels tallied four-straight hits, starting with Clayton Brown’s single up the middle. After a Sam Rector hit, John Reilly’s base knock to center scored one. Pardo then smacked the first pitch he saw into the gap in left-center, bringing two more home to make it 5-1 Camels.

Gardner-Webb threatened in the ninth after the first two Bulldogs reached.

A run would score on the Camels’ second error of the inning, but a strikeout and a foul out ended the Bulldog threat.

Matt Simmons and Alex Newman both picked up two hits for the Bulldogs, while Ryan Hodge scored twice.
Campbell nine seniors, Clayton Brown, Hector Cedano, Ryan Koopman, Matt Nadolski, John Reilly, Ryan Thompson, Elijah Trail, Brandon Wilson and Aaron Vogt were honored prior to Sunday’s game.

Campbell evened the series on Saturday as Hector Cedano recorded his first career complete game in a 7-2 win. GWU took the series opener Friday night on ESPNU, rallying for six runs in the top of the ninth to win it 6-5.

The Camels will head to North Carolina next Tuesday, taking on the Tar Heels at 6 p.m. in Chapel Hill, N.C. CU continues its Big South schedule at VMI next weekend, May 9-11, before wrapping up its home slate with UNC Wilmington on May 13.
