GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Kep Brown had a walkoff RBI single through the right side in the 13th inning to help UNC Wilmington beat Ohio State 4-3 in Saturday’s elimination game at the NCAA Tournament’s Greenville Regional.

Jacob Barnwell hit a home run for the third-seeded Buckeyes (36-24), who led 3-2 on Noah West’s RBI single in the top of the 11th inning.

Ohio State had just five hits for the game.
