VIDEO: Royals Draft Pick Whit Merrifield Knocks In Winning Run In College World Series

Meet South Carolina junior Whit Merrifield. He was a ninth round pick by the Royals in this year's draft.

He also just knocked in the game-winning run in the College World Series for the Gamecocks on Tuesday night.

Merrifield is actually not the first Royals draftee to be involved in something like this. Last year, LSU pitcher Louis Coleman was the one who closed out the CWS.

Merrifield is one of four Gamecocks that were Royals draftees: P Steven Neff, P Parker Bangs and P Jordan Propst.

Video of Merrifield's heroics is after the jump.
