UNCW tops Camels in home finale 3-0

Posted May 13

Six UNC Wilmington hurlers limited Campbell to two hits, leading the Seahawks to a 3-0 win at Jim Perry Stadium Tuesday night.

UNCW moved to 26-24 on the season with the win, while Campbell dropped to 34-17 overall in its home finale.

The Seahawks put two on via walk to open the contest before Luke Dunlap’s chopper into left scored Casey Golden from second.

UNCW again put two in the second, this time with one out, when Golden singled in a run. Terence Connelly’s groundout added another UNCW score to make it 3-0 Seahawks in the second.

Campbell loaded the bases in the third with two outs on two walks and a hit by pitch, but a groundout ended the Camel surge.

The Camels threatened again in the eighth, as Clayton Brown was hit by a Will Shepley offering and John Reilly singled to begin the home half of the inning. A double play followed by a fielder’s choice, however, quieted the rally.

Cory Gantz (3-1) earned the win in relief, pitching 2 1/3 perfect frames. The UNCW bullpen allowed one hit, striking out three. Kelly Secrest notched the save, his fifth, retiring the Camels in order while fanning two in the ninth.

UNCW starter Evan Phillips allowed a hit with two walks and a strikeout in 2 2/3.

James Darcy (1-1) took the loss for Campbell, allowing three runs on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks in 3 2/3.

Coley Thompkins tossed 5 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball, allowing just one hit with four punchouts.

Dunlap paced UNCW with a 2-for-4 night, driving in a run. Golden also knocked in and scored a run for the visiting Seahawks.

The Camels will round out the regular season this weekend with a Big South series at Coastal Carolina. The set begins Thursday at noon and runs through Saturday. The Big South Championships begin Tuesday, May 20 in Rock Hill, S.C., hosted by Winthrop University.
