TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (SEMINOLES.COM) — Tyler Martin drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the 11th inning, capping Florida State’s 6-5 come-from-behind win over No. 25 Georgia Southern.

FSU fell behind 5-1 – highlighted by a pair of Noah Ledford home runs – after seven innings. In the eighth, James Tibbs doubled and Jordan Carrion singled before both runners scored on groundouts by Colton Vincent and Martin.
