Ole Miss beats Auburn with walk-off HR on attempted intentional walk (GIF)

Ole Miss turned an intentional walk into a walk-off home run to knock off Auburn in 13 innings Friday night.

The bizarre ending occurred when Auburn reliever Jay Wade attempted to intentionally walk Austin Anderson with two runners in scoring position, but lobbed his first pitch into the strike zone and the third baseman drilled a three-run bomb over the right-field fence for the 8-5 victory.

"He tried to sneak another one by me, and I just tried to hit it as hard and as far as I could," Anderson told the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger.

That at-bat would have been Anderson's third IBB of the night. So it seems reasonable he just wanted to take a swing at something.
