20 Innings

20 inning game jeez. Game was 2-2 when I left for work at 10 PM. I certainly never played in one that long

Congrats to UGA for hanging in there and pulling out the W.

Really hoping they make it to the CWS this year.

    I went to bed in the 19th around 1:00 am. Could barely keep my eyes open. Happy they got the dub and wish I had stayed up just a little longer to see it. Congrats Diamond Dawgs!

    Hope a mid-week game that long doesn't have a hang over going into the weekend series with Mizzou. The Tigers have been hot lately, although most of their big wins have come at home and I believe this series is in Athens.

    @swilkerson73 I hope so as well. My biggest concern is how will the bats respond come tournament time. We need our pitching to continue their excellence and to keep getting timely hitting.

    If Stricklin would've gone with the dual-threat pitchers the game would've been over sooner, right? Our pitchers were just standing their like a Jake Fromm statue!

    Students started showing up around 11 last night. The crowd was rocking after midnight, and it was an amazing win. Dawgs need more offense, but our pitching and defense are great.

    agree and if we could have had a couple of 310lb type guys out there it might have been over by the 7th inning.

    Should've kept the offense going late in the game. We lacked the killer instinct.

    Congrats to the Diamond Dawgs!

    Interesting article about the longest professional baseball game ever that went 33 innings. Wade Boggs and Cal Ripken both played in the game.

    I worked for a professional baseball team at the time and when I turned the ticker tape machine on the next Sunday morning in the press box, all of the innings started printing out. At first I thought the machine had gone haywire. Should have kept that tape now that I think about it.

    Lol I love the details and philosophy of different "baseball guys", but that game was literally like watching paint dry. Our pitching is as good as any team in the country from top to bottom; no question. N they have faced some ridiculously nasty guys that'll be n the show in 3-4 yrs (@ UTjr and CU.) But if this teams gonna make it to Omaha, they HAVE to find ways to manufacture more runs. Bunt for hits, hit n run, anything.. It's safe to say for the most part that if u give this staff and Kristofak, Moody, Glover, Pasqua, (Webb when healthy), Wilcox and Shunk 5 runs; we should win 9 out of 10.

    Cam will heat up eventually. It's REALLY hurting not having him n the leadoff spot. But his OBP is actually really good. Walked nearly 30 times this year. Good day's are ahead though. Gotta be VERY careful against Mizzou this wknd though. Scrappy team, and our bullpen is wore out for the most part. I think Wilcox will close game 1 bcuz Shunk threw 3 innings last night. Then Shunk should be ready for Friday and Saturday. Go DAWGS!
