Longest. Game. Ever.: From a Ducks PR…

On Tuesday evening, the Long Island Ducks and Camden Riversharks treated all fans in attendance at Citibank Park to an 18-inning contest that set the league record for the longest game in league history.

After the Ducks tied the score at five in the eighth inning, the game would progress another six frames before another run would cross the plate. Both clubs put up a two-spot in the 15th inning before Camden would score the game-winning run in the 18th, six hours and 20 minutes after the game began.

The 18-inning contest was the longest game played in the Atlantic League’s history in both innings and time elapsed. During the contest, the teams combined for 34 hits, two doubles, a triple and three home runs, while the pitching staffs combined for 39 strikeouts (LGI 22, CA 17). During the game, fielders Jason Conti, Richie Barrett and Matt Demarco took the hill for the Riversharks. Conti picked up the win in his first career appearance on the hill after hurling three scoreless innings of relief.

And tonight (Wednesday) it took only two hours and one minute for the Ducks 5-0 victory over Camden, the shortest game this year for the Ducks. Pat Mahomes had the complete game victory.

This is from the Ducks web site:

Long Island Ducks team officials today announced that they have signed outfielder Jayson Bass for the remainder of the 2006 season.

Bass comes to Long Island after splitting time with Monclova (AAA) of the Mexican League and Nashua of the Can Am League (Ind.). In just 58 games (205 at-bats) in Nashua and Mexico, the power-hitting outfielder clobbered 15 home runs, drove in 39 runs and had a combined batting average of .351.

To make room for Bass on the roster, Long Island has placed two-time American League MVP Juan Gonzalez on the team’s inactive list.
