College World Series: G.K. Young hammers monster home run in championship game

  G.K. Young's (right) home run proved to be the difference in Game 3 of the CWS finals.

Down 2-0 and hoping to avoid further damage, Arizona was one strike away from getting out of the top half of the sixth inning in Game 3 of the College World Series finals.

G.K. Young had another idea.

The Coastal Carolina designated hitter absolutely unloaded on a Bobby Dalbec offering, slugging a 2-run homer that put the Chanticleers up 4-0 in the do-or-die game.

Take a look at the incredible shot:

Wow. Young's homer was measured at a remarkable 415 feet, making it the third longest home run in College World Series history at TD Ameritrade Park.

Young's two RBIs ultimately proved to be the difference in the game, as Coastal Carolina held off Arizona just enough to take the 4-3 win and earn its first CWS title in program history.

Congrats to Young and the Chants.
