GREENVILLE, N.C. — The Quinnipiac Bobcats baseball team will ride the high of an exhilarating win against the tenth-ranked East Carolina Pirates on Saturday night into a regional semifinal matchup with the Campbell Fighting Camels Sunday afternoon.

The Bobcats will run out their number one starting pitcher, right-hander Tyler Poulin, to combat a Camels offense that was held to just four hits by the since-eliminated N.C. State Wolfpack on Friday.

Seth Johnson, a surefire selection in the upcoming MLB Draft, will toe the rubber for Campbell. The junior has made 11 starts in 2019, including a season-high 10 strikeouts against Charleston Southern on May 4.

The winner of this afternoon’s contest will advance to the Greenville Regional championship game on Monday at 1 p.m. The loser faces elimination and will square off against the Pirates at 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Quinnipiac’s win on Saturday was the team’s 30th of the season, setting a program record. They’ll hope for two more painless victories to advance to an improbable super regional appearance.
