Well, this is one way to get it done.
The San Diego Toreros and Pacific Tigers squared off in an NCAA college baseball game Saturday, with home team San Diego getting the 16-9 win. Nothing out of the ordinary at first glance, but the Toreros pulled out that win makes for one of the strangest games I’ve ever seen.
For most of the name, Pacific had a solid lead. In the top of the fourth inning, they were up 6-1, which they extended to 8-2 in the top of the sixth. Sounds like it should be an easy win from there, right?
Sure. Unless of course you get completely outplayed by pure small-ball while making a load of mistakes. Unfortunately for Pacific, that’s exactly what happened. They gave up 10 runs in the bottom of the eighth alone, giving the Toreros a 16-8 lead.
And here’s the kicker: the ball didn’t leave the infield a single time.
Here’s three minutes and 50 seconds of pure chaos from one of the wildest eighth innings you’ll ever see.#GoToreros pic.twitter.com/lILkystdEG

This is why I love college sports — so much chaos.
I hate that I missed this, but who else has a problem with “fanwidth”? In other words, who else has a hard time absorbing all of the great sports content out there?
There’s just so much of it nowadays, and things move so quickly, and then on top of that, I have a wife and kids, which is a full-time job in itself. Even for a professional sports blogger, it’s hard to catch everything in real time.
Also, man oh man would I have loved to see this madness unfold live in front of my eyes. Live sports just hit different. (RELATED: REPORT: Ivan Prieto Leaves Cuban National Team Before They Fly Back Home After Being Eliminated From WBC)
I need to somehow extend my fanwidth so I can catch gem moments like this — YouTube TV, you can help me out here.
