Baseball: Johns Hopkins walks off with its 14th conference championship

No. 5 Blue Jays rally to defeat Ursinus, 4-3, in Centennial Conference final

Freshman Mike Eberle's ninth-inning single lifted the Johns Hopkins men's baseball team to 4-3 win against Ursinus on Sunday afternoon in the Centennial Conference tournament final, giving the Blue Jays their 14th conference title.

No. 5 Hopkins (36-6) won all three games in the tournament and was led by senior Ryan Orgielewicz, who was named the tournament MVP.

In the championship game, JHU fell behind 3-2 in fifth inning but rallied to tie the score in the seventh, benefitting from three walks and a hit by pitch. That set the stage for Eberle's heroics, a one-out single to left-centerfield that scored senior Tommy Mee. Complete box score

The Blue Jays have won 19 consecutive games, the fourth-longest winning streak in the program's history.
