LAWTON – Cameron rallied back a 11-3 deficit to score 16 runs in the seventh and eighth inning to beat Eastern New Mexico 19-11 at McCord Field on Sunday afternoon.

This was the largest scoring outburst by Cameron since April 29, 2011 and with the win they will take the season series three games to one over Eastern New Mexico.

Jordan Climpson went 4-for-5 at the plate, scoring four runs and drove in a pair to help lead Cameron.

The Greyhounds used two five run innings to build up a sizeable eight run advantage over the Aggies before the tides changed in the bottom of the seventh.

Cameron would plate six runs in the seventh off of five hits and an error to cut the ENMU lead to 11-9.

However, the Aggies were not done yet and they would send 14 batters to the plate in eighth inning.  Cameron took advantage of three ENMU errors and four walks to push through four hits and plate 10 runs to race past the Greyhounds by eight for the win.

Kas SandersCody Knight, and Kaden Hardzog all plated three runs for the Aggies.  Additionally, Matt Nilmeyer had a productive day at the plate with four runs scored and a pair of RBI.

The four runs scored by Climpson and Nilmeyer was the highest total for an Aggie batter since March 25, 2012 where Kevin Waukau scored that same amount against Eastern New Mexico.

Logan Fanning started the game and went four innings while giving up eight runs (four earned) in the no-decision.  Brent Hendy (1-1) in his second appearance of the season went the final 4 1/3 innings for the win.

With the victory on Sunday the Aggies move to 9-15 overall and 4-10 in the Lone Star Conference.

Cameron will return to action for a four game series starting on Friday at West Texas A&M.
