When you score 28 runs in a game, you need to do something special to commemorate it.

The Illinois baseball team set its incredible outburst vs. Rutgers on Sunday to R.B.I. Baseball, the iconic Nintendo game, and it is as awesome as you'd expect.

From the camera angle, to the graphics, to the music, Illinois nailed the recreation.

The 28 runs were the most Illinois has scored since 2000, when it plated an Illinois Field record 30.

Illinois twice erased four-run deficits and erupted for 11 runs in the eighth inning en route to the 28-13 victory, the team's 24th straight win, tying the nation's longest winning streak of the season.

Perhaps most amazing of all of the stats, and there were a lot of them, Illinois scored 10 of its 11 eighth-inning runs with two outs.

Another impressive stat: Second baseman Reid Roper became the first player in the 136-year history of Illinois baseball to score six runs in a game. He drove in six runs, to boot.
