Tyler Wilson and Allen Bolden had three hits apiece, but Lipscomb fell just short in its bid for a third straight come-from behind victory.

With the tying and go-ahead runs on in the bottom of the ninth, Logan Hostetler hit into a game-ending fielder’s choice and the Bisons lost 8-7 in the series finale at Ken Dugan Field.

Lipscomb (21-29, 15-12) trailed 7-2 after six innings but scored three in the seventh and two in the eighth. M.L. Williams had an RBI double in the seventh and an RBI single in the eighth.

Campbell (25-21, 7-16) scored the winning run in the top of the eighth with just one hit. Ryan Hamme hit a one-out double, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a ground ball.

The Bisons won each of the first two games of the series Friday in their last at-bats.
