Charleston Southern was the first Big South team to be eliminated from the conference tournament after losing 6-2 to Campbell Thursday morning. Four runs in the bottom of the seventh proved the difference for the Camels, who were looking to bounce back from an opening round loss to No. 6 Coastal Carolina.

Campbell (36-20) smashed out 12 hits, including an RBI single by Matt Parrish and a two-run single by Clayton Brown during the bottom half of the seventh inning when the Camels pushed a 2-0 lead to 6-0.

Chase Shelton’s home run in the top of the ninth cut the deficit to 6-2, but that was as close as the Bucs (30-26) would get. Fort Mill High School grad Andrew Tomasovich took the loss on the mound for Charleston Southern, while his brother, Alex, posted a pair of hits in his final college baseball game.

Campbell plays Coastal Carolina, which lost to Winthrop 3-2 Thursday, on Friday at 3 p.m.

No. 5 Radford 5, No. 8 Gardner-Webb 4: Radford scored in the bottom of the ninth to eliminate Gardner-Webb. With the score tied 4-4, Brad Keen scored on a groundball in the infield, sliding under the catcher’s tag to end the game.

Gardner-Webb ends the season 24-31, while Radford improved to 33-22.

Radford plays the loser of the Liberty-High Point game, which finished after the Herald’s publishing deadline.

Radford’s Friday game will start 45 minutes after the 3 p.m. game concludes.
