Illinois scored 28 runs on 26 hits against Rutgers on Sunday. It was the final game of a three-game sweep and it helped push the Illini to #5 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. 7 Illini had multi-RBI games, there were 9 homers in the contest, and more in the slugfest.
The game was so bonkers that it earned the Nintendo RBI Baseball treatment. The Illini Athletic Department deserves to be commended for turning this video game-like real life matchup into, well, a video game…
