The Buckeyes went to Greenville with high hopes of making a run in the NCAA Baseball Tournament, but fell to UNC-Wilmington yesterday to end their season.
Ohio State Baseball’s Season Ends With Loss In NCAA Regional
Ohio State’s baseball season ended yesterday in heartbreaking fashion. Despite giving up seventeen hits in regulation, Ohio State pitching was able to limit the timely hit for UNC-Wilmington and keep the score tied at 2-2 through nine innings.
Then — as Ohio Sate has done multiple times during the season — persevered and found a way to scratch across one run in the top of the eleventh with a Noah West two-out RBI single to give the Buckeyes a 3-2 lead.
But the Seahawks struck back in the bottom of the inning to tie the game and keep things going before a lightning delay halted play in the eleventh inning.
That would set the stage for a walk off RBI single in the bottom of the thirteenth inning after play resumed to put a wrap on a season that had more highs than lows, and that will hopefully set the stage for momentum towards next year.
