Cincinnati showed likely No. 1 overall pick Adley Rutschman the ultimate respect on Friday night.
The Bearcats decided to intentionally walk the Oregon State catcher with the bases loaded and nobody out in a 5-2 game, forcing in a run. They essentially gave him the Barry Bonds treatment.
Bases loaded intentional walk!?!?
Oregon State got two singles later in the inning to bring in three more runs and take a 6-5 lead. However, Cincinnati scored one in the eighth to tie the game and another in the ninth to take the lead. They won 7-6, pulling the upset on the Corvallis Regional hosts in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
