You ever watch a team try to issue an intentional walk in baseball but think to yourself that the pitcher is still leaving the ball dangerously close to the plate? Yeah, well it finally backfired on someone.
Ole Miss third baseman Austin Anderson burned Auburn pitcher Jay Wade with a walk-off 3-run home run in the bottom of the 13th inning in Oxford Friday night on a pitch that was supposed to be off the plate for an intentional walk.
The Tigers had intentionally walked Anderson in his two previous at-bats and were trying to make it three in a row, but Wade left a pitch over the plate and Anderson crushed it over the right field fence. The senior infielder was 2-for-5 with 3 RBIs in the 8-5 win, and he surely delivered one of the most memorable moments of the college baseball season.
Oh, and the way he just posed and did the bat flip after was so money.
