Texas outlasted Boston College in 25 innings

The longest game in NCAA history ended on a simple force out at second base, as Texas defeated Boston College 3-2 in 25 innings at the Austin Regional of the NCAA collegiate baseball tournament. The game lasted seven hours, three minutes.

Longhorn Travis Tucker, in his 12th at-bat on the evening, bounced a single through the right side of a drawn-in infield to score Connor Rowe from third base in the top of the 25th inning.

UT reliever Austin Wood was the unsung hero of the game, as he threw 13 shutout innings in relief. He pitched no-hit ball through the first 12 1/3 innings, striking out 14 Golden Eagle batters on 169 pitches thrown.

After the final out was recorded, the entire Longhorn team celebrated the victory on the field, and saluted the remaining crowd with a rendition of “The Eyes of Texas.”

Boston College has an early wake-up call. They will play Army in an early afternoon elimination game on Sunday, while Texas will not play until later that evening at 6 PM.
