After leaving the bases loaded in the first, North Carolina got on the board with two in the third. Bolt led off the inning with his second hit and moved to third on Russell’s single to left.

With Russell taking second on the throw, Campbell starter Bobby Thorson (2-5) intentionally walked Tom Zengel to load the bases with one out. Tyler Ramirez drove in Bolt with a sacrifice fly, and Parks Jordan plated Russell with a single through the right side.

Landon Lassiter scored on Zengel’s sacrifice fly in the fifth, and North Carolina added two in the sixth on RBI hits from Bolt and Russell.

N.C. Central 4, Presbyterian 2: The Blue Hose scored a run in the ninth and had the bases loaded, but N.C. Central got out of the jam to preserve its victory at Durham Athletic Park.

N.C. Central (17-29-1) scored two runs in the opening inning and added two more in the eighth.

Jacob Midkiff of Rock Hill went 2-for-4 and drove in both runs for Presbyterian (16-31-1). Brad Zebedis, also from Rock Hill, had two hits as well.
