The first round of our tournament concludes this afternoon with the 2-7 game. Voting will close on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 PM.

2. Michael Conforto Throw against Kansas State (Game Three)

Oregon State dominated the winner-to-Omaha game for seven innings and took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the eighth, but a nervous sell-out crowd was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. And with just four outs to go until a dogpile, drop it did in the form of a Kansas State 2 RBI double to cut the deficit to just a single run. The next batter was RJ Santigate, who's liner to left field short-hopped into the glove of Conforto. Never to fear, however, as Michael managed to top a throw I thought never would be bested, unleashing a laser to a waiting Jake Rodriguez, who completed the brilliant play. The throw led to this scene an inning later.

7. Dylan Davis Walkoff Double against Texas-San Antonio


Another play, another moment that very well could have saved our season. Definitely underseeded at seven, can you imagine the embarrassment if we lose this one? And not only that, but winning four games in three days the way we looked at the plate seemed nearly impossible. But Davis came to the rescue, paving the way to the Regional winner's bracket and quite possibly saving the season.
