The contest soon pivoted as Campbell tied the score before Hallum hit the first pitch from Jimmy Boyd (1-3) over the left field fence with the bases loaded for a 7-3 Camels lead.

Luke Lowery returned from a back ailment to hit his fifth home run of the season, a solo shot in the seventh to cut the lead to 8-4.

Bryce Harman (double) and Lowery each went 3-for-5 for ECU. Eric Tyler, Travis Watkins and Kirk Morgan each had two hits for the Pirates.

N.C. State transfer Brian Taylor went 3-for-4 for Campbell. Coley Thompkins (3-0) got the win in relief, working four innings and allowing four hits with one earned run.
