Game day

April 10 doubleheader

PitchingSophomore Lexi Myers and freshman Kelly Weaver anchor the Camels pitching core. Myers leads the team in wins with a 7-7 record. Both pitchers have a respectable ERA that is just over 3.00. The problem for the Camels is that hitters are averaging over .275 at the plate against these pitchers. For FAU, Amanda Morin is bringing up the rear with a 1.69 ERA. Yep that is almost half of her counterparts at Campbell. Candice Freel is still on pace for a career year with a .96 ERA and 6 shutouts. The Camels will have a tough time at the plate with FAU being so strong pitching this year. Candice Freel, Ashley Greener and Amanda Morin are 3rd, 4th and 10th respectively in the A-Sun conference for pitchers.Edge: FAU

HittingThese two teams are back to back in the conference for hitting at 7th and 8th. Jessica Sachs leads the Owls in hits and runs scored. FAU does spread it out, as Pam Mazzarella leads in batting average and doubles while Jessica Braggins leads in home runs with 6. Erica Willis leads Campbell with a .355 batting average and also has 8 doubles. The edge here is decided by the pitching. Fortunately for FAU, it won’t need to score many runs because its pitchers do not letup that many.Edge: FAU

IntangiblesFAU has the edge in experience, as the Camels only have 2 seniors and 6 freshmen. The Owls are also still running on the high they received by playing so well early in the season against non-conference opponents. Playing at home will also give the Owls an advantage; although small, the crowd will be out to root-on the home squad.Edge: FAU

UP predictionFAU is chasing 6-0 UCF and 7-1 Mercer in the conference, so they will want to make quick work of the Camels. The Owls will be preparing for the Mercer Bears who come to Boca the following week, and who put second place in the conference on the line. Pitching will be the key, as FAU will need to score less runs to pull out the victories than Campbell will.
