Auburn and LSU have rewarded fans with some pretty remarkable games with even more remarkable finishes, but today’s SEC Baseball Tournament game between the two might have been the best.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, LSU trailed, 3-2, with one out and runners on second and third. A wild pitch from the Auburn pitcher went behind the LSU batter, who stood still and essentially blocked the catcher from finding the loose pitch.
Meanwhile, the LSU runner on third scrambled for home while Auburn’s catcher searched desperately for the ball. By the time the pitcher found the ball and threw it to home plate, the runner scored to tie the game.
But the catcher at home plate couldn’t secure the ball, and it went well-behind him. The second-base runner, who had already made it to third by this point, decided to make for home, and was able to get there before the third baseman could even get his hands on the ball.

A baseball game can’t end much crazier than that!
With the win LSU was able to make it to the third round of the tournament. The Tigers will take on the loser of Vanderbilt vs. Mississippi State on Friday.
Hopefully the Tigers have a few more surprises like this one!
