Tulane beats SLU with walk-off homer

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Down 4-3 in the bottom of the 10th, Tulane senior Tyler Wilson launched a two-run walk-off home run to left to give the Green Wave a dramatic 5-4 win over Southeastern.

"I was just down two strikes looking like it wasn't really in my favor, and I just connected with something," Wilson said. "It was fastball in. I kind of knew, but I was still running to make sure."

Tulane had led 3-1 heading into the ninth, but the Lions rallied for two runs to send the game into extra innings. Jacob Seward scored the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th on a passed ball.

With the win, Tulane (28-16) sweeps the season series with the Lions (33-13) for the first time since 2012.
