WCWS: Auburn's Emily Carosone hits walk-off grand slam to force Game 3 in finals

WCWS Championship: Auburn Stuns Oklahoma

Emily Carosone, are you serious?

The Auburn second baseman hit a walk-off grand slam on Tuesday night, helping the Tigers pull off one of the greatest comebacks in Women's College World Series history to even the championship series at one game apiece with Oklahoma.

Take a look:

The Tigers trailed 7-0 early on, but didn't give up. Auburn scored five in the second inning, two more in the fourth to tie it up and Tiffany Howard made a home-run saving catch in the top of the sixth inning to keep the game knotted at seven.

The score would remain the same until Carosone's bomb in the bottom of the eighth, giving the Tigers 11 unanswered runs in the contest.

Simply incredible.
