Catch 22: Fresno St. tops USD in 3rd-longest game

Posted: Updated:

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Garrett Weber's RBI single in the 22nd inning gave Fresno State a 3-2 victory over San Diego on Saturday night in a game that lasted over 7 hours and tied for the third-longest in NCAA Division I history.

Fresno State (17-2) tied it at 2 in the bottom of the ninth on Brennan Gowens' two-run double.

In the 22nd, Danny Muno hit a leadoff single for the Bulldogs, stole second and scored on Weber's single to left with two outs to beat San Diego (4-16) and end the game after 7 hours, 12 minutes.

The teams tied Baylor-Houston (1999) and Colorado-Nebraska (1974) for the third-longest game. The Division I record was set in 2009, when Texas beat Boston College 3-2 in 25 innings in an NCAA regional game.
