Ty Evans Shares His First Thought After Hitting Historic Grand Slam

Witness history unfold as Ty Evans smashes a grand slam in Game 2 against LSU.

The Men's College World Series is officially heading into Game 3. The winner-take-all-game will take place Monday night, following a historic 24-4 victory by the Florida Gators over the LSU Tigers in Game 2 on Sunday.

In that game, there were many highlight performances, including Jac Caglianone hitting his 33rd home run of the season and Wyatt Langford going five for five. But one that stood out among the rest was Ty Evans two home runs. The Florida player hit the first-ever grand slam in Men's College World Series finals history.

Evans might be single-handedly responsible for getting his team back on track in the game.

His first home run came in the second inning, a solo shot. Then, after two runs were scored to tie the game in the third inning, Evans knocked his grand slam to left field to give Florida a four-run lead.

"I honestly thought it was foul off the bat probably just like everybody else," Evans told Saturday Down South. "But I just started jogging it out and I looked up at Luke and he was spinning around in circles. I didn't see the ball. I just knew it was out when he started doing that."

From there, the Gators dominated, outscoring the Tigers 17-1.

The Tigers and Gators square off Monday, June 26, at 7 p.m. to decide the winner of the Men's College World Series.
