Unbelievable! Rutgers' Jordan Sweeney blasts walk-off HR to keep win streak alive
The long win streak continues for Rutgers baseball.
Sunday afternoon, Jordan Sweeney stretched that winning streak to 15 games after blasting a solo shot over the fence to lift the Scarlet Knights over Indiana 10-9. The home run came in the bottom of the 9th inning.
