UC Santa Barbara player doesn't need to see where his 14th-inning walk-off home run lands

The UCSB Gauchos must be ecstatic right now. Their baseball team was in extra innings against the Washington Huskies on Friday in Nashville.

With the score tied at one in the 11th inning, MJ Hubbs fired a laser throw to complete the double play that would both send the game into the 12th and make the Dodgers' Yasiel Puig jealous.

That would have made any team worry about their chances, but the Gauchos bounced back a few innings later.

To top that stellar throw, Austin Bush hit his eighth homer of the year for the walk-off victory.

And as cool as that was, he had no time to look at the ball soar for the win. It was the proverbial "deal with it" moment of the game. The Gauchos will now go on to face the winner of Vanderbilt-Xavier.

Make sure to celebrate when you all get back to Isla Vista with some Freebirds!
