The Seahawks left a school-record tying 16 runners on base, 10 in scoring position, in a 6-5 defeat in 11 innings to first-place Old Dominion in a Colonial Athletic Association baseball game Saturday at Brooks Field.

Winning pitcher Dana Arrowood (5-1) made the Seahawks pay for the missed opportunities, limiting UNCW to only one hit in 3 2/3 innings in relief. He also struck out eight of the 13 he faced.

ODU coach Jerry Meyers said the Monarchs (38-11, 20-6) made big pitches when they needed in order to grind out their sixth extra-inning victory without a loss.

The Monarchs scored the go-ahead run on Jimmy Miles' RBI single off Adam Paul (5-1), who worked a season-long 4 1/3 innings in relief and allowed two runs. Allen Flood replaced him with the bases-loaded and struck out two of the three batters he faced and recorded the last out on a fly ball.

UNCW had taken a 5-4 lead in the eighth inning on senior Lee McLean's two-out RBI double that scored John Raynor. Raynor had opened the inning with a double.

But UNCW left fielder Jason Appel misjudged Mike Zahm's line drive and it turned into a double in the top of the ninth. Arrowood, the designated hitter who came in to pitch in the eighth, tied the game at 5 with a single.

UNCW spotted ODU four runs in the first inning and kept chipping away against Monarchs' ace Jason Godin a national pitcher of the week last month.

Earlier this year, Godin broke current Detroit Tigers' hard-throwing right-hander Justin Verlander's school record with 18 strikeouts in a game against Northeastern. Godin also had a 17-strikeout performance.
