OREM, Utah-- Junior Jeff Campbell threw a complete-game and added a pair of hits and three runs batted in at the plate to help UND earn its first-ever Western Athletic Conference series win as it defeated Utah Valley, 10-4 on Sunday afternoon. North Dakota won two of three against the Wolverines this weekend.

"Campbell threw a tremendous game today," UND head coach Jeff Dodson said. "He threw 103 pitches and threw to a lot of soft contact. Our defense was good and the offense continued to put us in good position. To take two of three on the road against a good team like UVU is a great start to our conference season."

Campbell allowed four runs and scattered 10 hits over his nine-inning win. He struck out four without issuing a walk. At the plate, he homered to kickstart the offense early, then drove in runs in both the sixth and eighth innings to help his own cause.

Campbell's solo shot to leadoff the second made it 2-1 Wolverines until a three-run fourth put UND on top for good. Jacob Threlkeld tripled home two runs and later came in on a Tyler Follis single, one of his four hits on the afternoon.

The top four in the lineup combined to go 11-for-21 with five runs and nine RBI in the win. Follis drove in a run in each of his final four at bats as UND scored nine of its total runs over the last six innings. Patrick Riewer reached three times and scored on each occasion as the lineup turned over and produced runs in bunches.

UND amassed 10 runs and 16 hits for the second consecutive game. Follis finished the day 4-for-6 with four RBI while Threlkeld had three hits with a pair of runs and two RBI. Ryan Reese had two hits as did Taylor Petersen and Campbell.  

North Dakota (2-9, 2-1 WAC) continues its west coast swing Wednesday with a single game at UNLV. The conference schedule reconvenes Friday at Bakersfield for a three-game set.
