Rain halts Campbell-NC State game; play to resume Saturday
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Campbell and North Carolina State will continue their NCAA regional game Saturday after weather concerns kept them from finishing as scheduled Friday.
Campbell, the No. 3 seed, was leading the second-seeded Wolfpack 5-4 after 8 ½ innings Friday afternoon when play was halted. After a weather delay that lasted over five hours, tournament officials announced that the game would resume Saturday at noon.
The scheduled Friday night game between No. 1 seed East Carolina and No. 4 seed Quinnipiac will now take place Saturday at 4 p.m.
Campbell had taken a 4-0 lead in the first inning thanks in part to a two-run homer from Koby Collins. NC State closed the gap with three runs in the third. Campbell extended the lead to 5-3 in the fourth before Jonny Butler’s solo shot in the eighth made it 5-4.
