ROCK HILL, S.C. — After a scoreless first inning, the Campbell baseball team offense exploded during Tuesday's 28-11 road win over Winthrop.
Across the second through fifth innings, the Camels collected a season-high 22 runs.
The two teams posted the most combined runs in a single game in CU history.
The win moves Campbell to 14-8 and 9-5 in the league, while Winthrop drops to 8-11 and 5-6 in the Big South.
Ty Babin got the offense started for the Camels with a two-run single in the second inning. After he swiped second, Lawson Harrill delivered an RBI single to extend the lead to 3-0.
Winthrop got two of those runs back in the bottom half of the frame on an RBI single and a run-scoring fielder's choice.
Campbell wasted no time adding to its lead by posting a six spot in the third.
Matthew Christian launched his fifth home run of the year, a two-run shot that was accompanied by Bryce Arnold 's RBI single and Zach Neto's three-run homer over the left-field wall, to give the Camels a 9-2 lead.
After two more Winthrop runs in the third, Campbell opened up its biggest inning of the year in the fourth, putting eight runs on the board and sent 12 batters to the plate.
The big hit in the frame came on an Arnold bases-clearing triple to the right-field corner. Grant Harris also tripled in the inning.
The Camels blasted a pair of home runs in the fifth, a three-run shot from Arnold and a two-run blast from Christian.
By the end of the fifth, the Camels had amassed 19 hits, the most in a game this season, and batted around in three innings.
Six Camels appeared on the mound over the course of the evening. Aaron Rund picked up the first win of his career tossing two innings in relief.
Campbell returns to Jim Perry Stadium for a weekend set with Charleston Southern. That series gets underway Friday at 6 p.m. ahead of a Saturday doubleheader beginning at 2 p.m.
