UWSP win first game of NCAA RegionalSubmitted: 05/15/2013
Story By UWSP Athletics

WHITEWATER - Ryan Schilter stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and the score tied in the bottom of the tenth inning and smacked a walk-off single through the left side to give the UW-Stevens Point baseball team a 6-5 win over Benedictine in the first game of the NCAA Division-III Midwest Regional Wednesday afternoon.

Benedictine posted three runs in the first inning and added one more in the second inning to take an early 4-0 lead.

The Pointers got on the board in the home half of the second inning when Jimmy Coady led off with a double and scored off the bat of Riley Spetz.


Coady once again provided a scoring spark by leading off the fourth inning with a home run to bring UWSP to within 4-2.

The Pointers knotted the game with two runs in the fifth inning when Schilter hit an RBI double to score Dan Douglas who had reached on a single.

Schilter later scored on a sacrifice fly hit by Coady.

The Eagles reclaimed the lead with one run in the sixth inning, but Coady drew a two-out walk in the seventh inning, advanced to third on a single by Casey Barnes, and scored a wild pitch to tie the game 5-5.

Tyler Flood and Luke Watson combined to allow just one hit through 4.1 innings out of the bullpen to setup Schilter's heroics.

Bobby Gregorich (Plover, WI/SPASH) led off the bottom of the tenth inning with a walk and Nick Douglas followed with a free pass. A passed ball allowed Gregorich and Douglas to advance a base and Clint Rose was intentionally walked to load the bases for Schilter, whose single scored Gregorich for the win.

The Pointers will play the winner of UW-Whitewater vs. Case Western (to be played Wednesday night) on Thursday, May 16 at 6 p.m.
