Louisville stunned, UC Santa Barbara earns CWS berth with walk-off grand slam

The heavily-favored Louisville Cardinals appeared to be on their way to forcing a divisive Game 3, as UC Santa Barbara trailed 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth-inning.

That is when the Gauchos dug deep to pull off a miraculous upset that clinched a berth in the 2016 College World Series.

After loading the bases, Sam Cohen stepped up to the plate and delivered a big shot down the right field line that went over the fence for a walk-off grand slam.

Congratulations to UC Santa Barbara on the big win.
