WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

UNCW’s Ryan Jeffers hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Seahawks a 2-1 win over nationally-ranked Coastal Carolina on Wednesday at Brooks Field.

Zack Canada and Jeffers each had two hits apiece, for Jeffers it was his 11th home run of the season.

UNCW reliever Luke Gesell (1-0) earned the win, striking out the only batter he faced in the top of the 13th.

UNCW (22-14) continues an eight-game homestand Friday when they open a three-game weekend series against Towson.
