Michigan State had already allowed seven runs in the bottom of the ninth inning in the opening game of the 2012 Big Ten Baseball Tournament on Wednesday, and with the tying run on third base, second basemen Ryan Jones bailed out the Spartans. On what looked like the game-tying hit, Jones climbed the ladder and robbed his counterpart, Nebraska second baseman Pat Kelly, of an RBI hit. The terrific catch sealed Michigan State’s 10-9 victory and put it into the winner’s bracket. The Spartans entered the inning leading 10-2. Watch the play now.
