WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University baseball had heroics all over the place in a thrilling 4-3, 15-inning game on Sunday afternoon that Head Coach Pete Wilk said was one of the most exciting games he'd been a part of as a coach. The game was the last of nine played in 10 days at North Charlotte Park in Port Charlotte, Fla. as part of the Snowbird Classic.

Georgetown closed out its Florida trip with a 6-3 record down south and returns home with an 8-6 overall record.

The Hoyas came back from a 3-0 deficit and scored the winning run in the bottom of the 15th to head home happy.

Freshman Eric Webber (Stockton, Calif./Saint Mary's) hit a leadoff single to right, moved to second on a single from senior third baseman Trevor Matern (Santa Clarita, Calif./Hart) singled and came home on a walk-off singe from senior center fielder Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester).

The Chippewas had broken a scoreless tie in the top of the fourth inning when Logan Regnier hit a bases-loaded triple, giving Central Michigan a 3-0 lead.

Central Michigan starter Rick Dodridge was strong through the first five innings, allowing only one hit, but the Hoyas began to chip into the lead.

Webber started the bottom of the sixth and moved to second on a single from Matern. Both runners came in two batters later on a two-run single from junior Christian Venditti (Newtonville, Mass./St. Sebastian's), cutting the lead to 3-2.

The Hoyas tied the game in the seventh when a pair of errors allowed senior left fielder Paul Bello (Towaca, N.J./Delbarton) to reach base and eventually come around to score.

The Georgetown bullpen threw eight scoreless innings and the Hoyas had a pair of standout plays in the field in the late innings. Bello made a terrific catch to prevent a leadoff double in the ninth and junior Justin Abbott (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook) threw out what would have been the winning run at the plate in the ninth.

Georgetown plays at home on Wednesday, March 13 against UMBC. First pitch is slated for 3 p.m.
