College of Charleston Wins In 23 Innings


Nothing like having to play a double-header and a half just to settle one game...

Happened in Charleston as the CoC played William and Mary. And played William and Mary. And played.

23 innings and a murderous-looking box score later, it was a 3-2 win for the home team.

Yes, only 3-2 in 23 innings...

The game ties for the second-longest in NCAA history and went a little over 6 hours. One game in the NCAA tourney went 25 innings in 2009 (Texas and BC) and a game back in 1971 also went 23 innings.

The teams scored in the 7th, the 19th, and the 23rd innings and Eric Bauer got the win for Charleston going ten innings in relief.

No word on if he threw 194 pitches in his outing.
