The Anchorage Glacier Pilots and Kenai Peninsula Oilers tied for the longest game in Alaska Baseball League history on Wednesday night, playing a 21-inning contest that lasted well over five hours.
Matt Daugherty scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 21st inning to end the marathon and give the Pilots a 4-3 win.
The teams combined to use 15 pitchers and three players batted nine times.
Among the heroes for the Pilots was pitcher Luke Bublitz, who tossed 8 and a third innings of scoreless relief.
The game ties an ABL record for innings played, also held by a Pilots' game against a team from Kamloops, British Columbia in June of 1992.
