CHARLESTON, SC (WAVY) – In truth, the college baseball season should be over for the College of William & Mary. Somehow, the Tribe (29-29) managed to erase a 8-1 deficit in the final inning of game one against the Seahawks (39-17), won that game in 12 innings 9-8 with a solo home run, and Sunday night, reached the top of the Colonial Athletic Association with a 14-9 win in game two to take the title.

No shortage of dramatics in the second game. With the game knotted at 9-9, Josh Smith sent a go-ahead grand slam sailing over the left field wall to give the Tribe a 13-9 lead. Zach Pearson added one more run with an RBI single shortly after, and William & Mary capped the night with a dogpile on the infield grass to celebrate an incredible run to the title and an automatic berth into to the NCAA Tournament.
