Reading Between The Seams:
You know that feeling when you absolutely crush the ball and just know it’s going over the fence? Even better on college baseball’s biggest stage and it’s the bottom of the 9th and you just won the game for your team? Oregon State’s Danny Hayes felt just that with two on and trailing by one run, 5-4. Only problem was, the wind was slightly in, and TD Ameritrade field is slightly larger than most college stadiums. The result is, warning track out to end the game and give Mississippi State the win. SB Nation has the full report and animated GIF:

The way he released the bat, he felt like he got it. The pitcher pretty much strained his neck as he whipped around to watch. The RF even seemed like he was back to the plate with no hope. But it was an out, and Oregon State must now fight their way back from the one-loss bracket while Mississippi State makes a huge stride to the final series.
Danny Hayes discussed all with the media after the game.
