We throw out phrases like "wildest game ever" a lot these days, but, uh, you try describing what happened between UCLA and Oregon State baseball on Saturday.
Simply put, the No. 3 seeded Bruins defeated the No. 2 seeded Beavers by a score of 25-22 in extra innings in the Pac-12 tournament. That is not a typo. Oregon State scored 22 runs, which is a comically high amount of runs to score in a baseball game, except the other team scored 25 runs.
It may also be worth mentioning UCLA was down 21-12 entering the bottom of the ninth inning, at which point the team reeled off nine runs in a half-inning that saw the first nine batters reach base.
Oh, and the Bruins via a walk-off three-run homer by sophomore catcher Tommy Beres, after a game-tying balk. It was Beres' first home run in his collegiate career.
