In the sixth, Campbell picked up another pair, starting with a Ben McQuown RBI double that scored Vogt. The junior then stole third and scored on an error to give the Camels a 4-2 lead.

Ben Fish’s sacrifice fly added another CU tally in the seventh.

Campbell added four runs in the eighth, starting with a Felton RBI groundout. Trail then doubled to score Graham and McQuown, and Ray topped off the Camel scoring with a RBI single through the right side, plating Trail.
