KWL's Longest game. 18 innings and counting!
Monday June 15th, 2009. That makes the date of the longest and most rediculous game in KWL history! On this night, two teams met up for the first time in the 2009 season; Industrials and Fightin' Roo's. What started as what was anticipated as a good pitching duel, became not only the longest game, but the most pitching dominated game in the history of the KWL. We have seen pitchers strikeout all 18 outs, and throw no hitters. We have seen many pitching duels end with a 1-0 score, but we have never seen two pitchers throw so well on the same night. Shutting down the offense and shutting down the scoreboard for 18 straight innings. In 18 innings of work, Kevin
and Brian combined for 62 K's, 11 BB's, 18 hits, and faced a total of 138 hitters. The best estimate for pitch counts were: Brian with 175 and Kevin with around 150. As darkness set in, the two pitchers showed no signs of letting up and the game was forced to be postponed and picked up at a later, still to be determined date.

The two teams only had a couple of scoring chances throughout the entire 18 inning game. The first chance came with the Roo's loading the bases with 1 out in the 9th inning. Brian struck out the next two hitters to push the game further into the night. The Industrials threatened in the 16th inning, but Don Kern was thrown out at the plate on a steller relay by Wolf and Marsz.
"It's laughable" said Brian Meyers. "At least we have something to show for this rediculous outing." he continued to say regarding the longest game in KWL history. "My arm hurts, I am going home." Kevin Marszalek added.

Heading into the game, Kevin's ERA was 1.86 and Brian's was 2.33. They now sit at 1.15 and 1.17 respectively.

****Game Finished!*****
Neither team relized that this game would have such a large baring on the 2009 playoff race, however the final week makeup loomed huge. The Industrials made a mad dash for the playoffs and forced the Roo's to have to win all 3 of the final games (2 regular scheduled games and the finish of this monster) to be able to make the playoffs. With one win, the Indies would seal their 09' playoff bid.

The game was resumed in the top of the 19th inning and as everyone suspected, the game ended fairly quickly. Pat Kean led off the 19th with a single followed by Don Kern's 2-Run opposite field bomb. Kevin retired the rest of the inning and came up in their half with a 2-run deficit. Brian struggled with his control, walking the leadoff hitter before getting Kevin and Joey out. With 2 outs and 2 on, Paul Wolf hit a single to score one. Brian finished the game off with a full count strikeout of AL Mvp Kevin Marszalek.
