BUIES CREEK, N.C.--Campbell University (17-3) scored the first 10 runs of the game and cruised to a 14-6 win over the Rider University baseball team on Tuesday evening in North Carolina at Jim Perry Stadium.

Junior Nick Crescenzo (Hammonton) hit an infield single to shortstop, scoring senior Adam Wayman (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./G.A.R. Memorial) who had reached on a throwing error as Rider cut the Camel lead to 10-1 in the top of the fourth.

"We gave up 14 runs in three and a third innings and the game was not competitive from that point forward," said head coach Barry Davis about the opener against the 29th ranked team in the nation.  "We had a couple chances late to get it down to six or seven runs but really were not in the game.  We made errors and didn't field the ball.  The first four innings, there wasn't a lot of good and that honestly took us out of the game."

Crescenzo had two of Rider's seven hits and scored twice.

Freshman Brian Donnelly (Churchville, Pa./Council Rock HS South) scored on a wild pitch in the top of the fifth inning as the Broncs cut the Campbell lead to 14-2 and Rider scored twice in the sixth inning on a two-run single by freshman Lee Lipinski (Glen Arm, Md./Calvert Hall) to get to within 14-4.

Lipinski hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Crescenzo and senior Richie Garcia (Franklin Square, N.Y./Valley Stream North) worked a bases loaded walk in the top of the eighth inning for the final score.

Rider hitters had 12 walks in the game but the Broncs left nine runners on base.

Senior Joe Calogero (Cherry Hill/Cherry Hill HS West) took the loss for Rider, working the first two innings, allowing seven hits and seven runs, all earned.

Senior Tim Hogan (Gibbstown/Gloucester Catholic), senior Chris LeRoy (Freehold/Colts Neck) and junior Kyle Kennett (Spring Lake/St. Rose) combined to pitch the final 4 2/3 innings of shutout baseball as the Broncs worked on a comeback.

Rider (8-7) faces Campbell Wednesday night at 6pm in the final game of the two-game set.

"I've been on both sides of games like tonight," Davis said.  "It happens.  We just have to come back out Wednesday night and it starts with our pitching.  "We can't start out down seven runs.  It's my job to put ourselves in a better position to win.  You are never as good as you think you are and never as bad as you think you are.  Things happen and we have to be accountable for the things that you do.  Campbell is a very good team and tomorrow will be a pride check.  They (Campbell) deserve a lot of credit."

The Broncs return home to face the New Jersey Institute of Technology in a non-conference doubleheader on Saturday at Sonny Pittaro Field, beginning at noon.  The third game against the Highlanders will be at NJIT on Sunday, also at noon.
