April 11, 2012
RALEIGH, N.C. - Wolfpack softball extended its winning streak to six games by sweeping a doubleheader from Campbell (20-22) Wednesday at Dail Stadium. The Pack won the first game 3-2 and shutout the Fighting Camels in game two, 3-0.
Emily Weiman secured her second shutout of the season in game two. In the complete game effort, she surrendered only three hits and struck out eight Campbell hitters.
Landon Warren and Davis drew back-to-back walks in the first inning and came around to score on a double by Albertson to put the Pack up 2-0 over Campbell.
Kirsty Grant led off the fourth inning with a triple, but was thrown out attempting to score on a wild pitch. Later in the frame, Warren, who was hit by a pitch to reach base, was gunned down at the plate on a single by Davis. After four complete innings, the Pack led the Fighting Camels 2-0.
Morgan Peeler surrendered two runs off of five hits and struck out three Campbell hitters for a complete game victory in game one.
Davis continued her hot hitting in the first game by going 2-for-3, and Chelsea Tate had her second consecutive perfect day at the plate, going 1-for-1 in the contest.
Warren opened the game for the Pack with a base hit, then moved into scoring position on a single by Davis. Bethaney Wells then followed with another single to load the bases for Albertson, who drew a walk to plate Warren. The next batter, Leah Jones, grounded out to score Davis and give the Pack a 2-0 lead over the Fighting Camels.
Campbell countered in the top of the second, scoring one run off of two hits in the frame to pull within one run of the Wolfpack, 2-1.
State increased its advantage to 3-1 in the sixth inning. Jones was hit by a pitch with one out in the frame and moved to second on Tate's first hit of the day. She advanced one more base on a single by pinch hitter Lippard, then scored on a passed ball.
In the top of the seventh, Shaela Churchill again pulled the Fighting Camels within one run by belting a home run over the right field wall, but Peeler retired the rest of the Campbell hitters that inning to preserve the 3-2 victory.
The Pack returns to action this weekend for an ACC series against North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C. The three-game set kicks off with a doubleheader on Saturday, April 14 at 1 and 3 p.m. in Chapel Hill, N.C. The series concludes Sunday, April 15 at noon.
