Suddenly, DeBernadis looked up and saw two Illini base runners standing at third base. He ran at third base and caused the runner from second to start retreating back to second base. Debernardis quickly fired to SS Michael Glantz who applied the tag to the runner to record the second out.
The runner on third, seeing DeBernardis make the throw to second base initially thought about scoring. However, he second guessed his decision to go home, and made a move back to third. Glantz realized this and fired a strike to PSU 3B Jordan Steranka who applied to tag for the third out.
The crowd (if you call +/- 400 people a crowd) erupted in cheers and ringing of cowbells.
The Lions went on to win the game 3-1 behind a complete game by P Johnny Walker.
