University of Maryland outfielder LamonteWade went full Yoenis Cespedes Monday during an NCAA regional game against UCLA, throwing out what would have been the Bruins' go-ahead run at home plate.

In the top of the third inning with one out and a runner on third, Wade fired a rocket home from center to nab a Bruins' runner and keep the game at a scoreless tie.  

Monday's exploits weren't Wade's first of the NCAA tournament, either. On May 29, he robbed Ole Miss of a home run, preserving the Terrapins' 3–1 lead over the Rebels. 

The winner of Monday's game between the Terrapins and Bruins will advance to the NCAA super regionals and take on Virginia in a best-of-three series.
