ICYMI: TCU Beats Sam Houston in 22 Innings


We started this with the "In Case You Missed It" moniker because more than likely you were asleep at 3:45 a.m when the game ended.

22 Innings and almost 7 hours after it started, Texas Christian University had an NCAA Sub Regional Baseball playoff win against Sam Houston State 3-2.

And the game didn't lack for drama or what ended up being false finishes.

A controversial double play attempt in the 21st inning initially had Sam Houston thinking they won the game...but the umpire at 2nd base ruled interference, giving TCU 2-outs and getting the Horned Frogs out of the inning.

Sam Houston coach David Pierce and the baserunner, Luke Plucheck were both ejected for arguing the call. The umpire stating that Plucheck got too close when breaking up the double play.

The win puts TCU from winning the reason, Sam Houston plays an elimination game at 3:30 Sunday afternoon.

In case you are wondering, the game was the 2nd longest in NCAA playoff history, the longest went 25 innings for what it's worth...

Here's the game highlights

We do have some reaction from both teams coaches courtesy of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
