VIDEO: Kent State Advances To College World Series With Dramatic Walk-Off Win, Play-By-Play Announcer Loses Voice

The Kent State Golden Flashes advanced to the 2012 College World Series on Monday night with an incredible walk-off win over Oregon in the decisive third game at Super Regionals. The Flashes led almost the entire game but, like Game 2, they squandered plenty of scoring opportunities which came back to bite them when the Ducks evened things up at 2-2 in the eighth inning. But KSU didn't take long to get the lead back, with Jimmy Rider sending a bloop down the left-field line that fell fair and scored Derek Toadvine for the win.

On the call for Kent State Sports was Ty Linder, who's become somewhat of a legend in these parts recently. He lost his voice as the incredible play unfolded, video after the jump:
