The Tacoma Rainiers had a little bonus baseball last night, picking up a 9-8 win in 14 innings. The game last 5 hours and 29 minutes. Thankfully I wasn't there. Scott Savastano ended the marathon with a sac fly in the bottom of the 14th.
Mike Curto wraps up the game with his blog. There are some fantastic notes in it ... like this one:
- We knew we were in for a long one when the ninth inning wrapped up, and it was tied, and it was 10:53 PM. It took 3 hours, 48 minutes to get through nine innings – and we weren’t even close to being finished.
Never miss a local story.
