Watch: WVU Baseball SS Tevin Tucker Goes All the Way Home After Stealing Third
PITTSBURGH – After getting behind early, WVU baseball shortstop Tevin Tucker was eventually able to excite the West Virginia fans at PNC Park in Pittsburgh.
Tucker was able to score in only the way someone like him could – by stealing third and then going all the way around to home. At the time, the run gave the Mountaineers a 6-4 lead in the bottom of the fourth.

It was one of eight unanswered runs in favor of WVU to turn the tables after getting behind 4-0 through two innings.
In typical Tucker fashion, he immediately got up and shouted for joy to celebrate after getting the run on the board.
West Virginia would leave the inning with 8-4 advantage against their arch rival in the baseball version of the Backyard Brawl.
