NORFOLK, VA--Jonathan Kolowich's three-run homer in the ninth inning broke a 10-10 tie as the Panthers of Georgia State (14-10/2-1) defeated Old Dominion (12-15/1-2), 16-10 in a CAA contest Sunday at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex. Both teams pounded out 17 hits on the day.

ODU led, 10-5 after seven innings, but the defending CAA champions rallied for five runs in the eighth highlighted by Mark Micowski's three-run double, then scored six in the ninth led by Kolowich's three-run homer.

Sophomore second baseman Josh Wright led ODU with four hits, while senior shortstop Chris Buss knocked in four runs for the Monarchs on three hits. Senior third baseman Jake McAloose added three hits and scored three runs for ODU. Edgar Hernandez also had two hits and an RBI for the Monarchs.
