    Texas - BC Game Goes 25 Innings

    Baseball wins longest game in NCAA history - TEXAS LONGHORNS Official Athletic Site

    Texas won 3-2, I know this is in the Road to Omaha thread, but I think it deserves its own.

    The "middle reliever" for Texas pitched 12 1/3 innings of no-hit baseball, which is insane. Threw 169 pitches, 120 for strikes.

    Game took more than 7 hours to finish.

    Re: Texas - BC Game Goes 25 Innings

    I was looking at that box score last night, just unreal stuff. Can't imagine how many people were left there at the end of the game with no scoring from the 6th inning through the top of the 25th. The most shocking stat other that the pitching for Texas was that BC went a total of 8 for 80, I guess goes hand and hand with the Texas pitching. Overall it is just a crazy box score to look at.

    I would have loved to be there for that. Pitcher's duel or long ball show, I love tight baseball games like that.

    I think if I made it to the end of the game, looking back I would be amazed. But going that many inning with no runs would have worn me down I fear.
    Either way that is some great pitching!

    If I were a fan of one of those teams I would have liked to have been there till the end. Just to say I was there for the longest game in NCAA history.

    Re: Texas - BC Game Goes 25 Innings

    I think the writers were tired afterward, too. I'm not sure how you go about
    ...scattering two hits...
    when they both came with one out in the same inning in spite of pitching 13 total, but, whatever.

    169 pitches? Incredible.

    There is plenty of drama in a good pitchers' duel. In an excellent one like this, there would be more. I would've loved to see it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Texas - BC Game Goes 25 Innings

    I'd rather be at a game like this, where every pitch counts, vs one where one team is up by 10 runs and there's no suspense at all.

    Exactly. When pitchers battle it out like that every swing of the bat has you on the edge of your seat.

    Especially when the manager starts asking guys on the bench whether they pitched any in high school. There couldn't have been much left in the bullpens.

    Hopefully that middle reliever doesn't plan on doing something later in life that will require having a working arm.
