Hurricanes bounce back, Vilar walks it off versus FGCU Eagles

It was a humbling weekend for the Hurricanes after getting swept by the Pittsburgh Panthers, but the Canes found themselves in the win column Wednesday evening in their return to Mark Light Field.

While a sluggish Miami offense kept the Eagles within reach all game long, the Hurricanes ultimately pulled away with an exhilarating walk-off win in the bottom half of the ninth inning.

With one away and a runner on second in the final frame, second baseman Anthony Vilar delivered the game-winning base hit to bring CJ Kayfus in to score and conclude matters in Coral Gables with a 3-2 win for Miami.
