Muckdogs, Doubledays need more than 20 innings

July 8, 2005


Twenty innings weren't enough for the Batavia Muckdogs and the Auburn Doubledays on Thursday night.


In the New York-Penn League game at Auburn, the Muckdogs and Doubledays called it a night in the top of the 21st with the game tied 5-5.


Batavia entered the bottom of the ninth with a 5-3 lead, but Auburn came back with two runs of its own. Matt Cooksey tried to score the winning run from second on a Jermy Acey single, but was gunned down at the plate by right fielder Jordan Szabo for the final out of the inning.


Emmanuel Sena leads both teams in hitting, going 6-for-8 with a double, a walk, two RBIs and a run scored. Szabo and John Hardy both were 3-for-8.


Each team used seven pitchers over the course of the game, with Batavia's Kevin Shepard lasting the longest. The southpaw tossed five scoreless innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out six. Paul Phillips threw three perfect innings for Auburn, fanning four.


The game will resume at 5:05 p.m. ET on Aug. 14 at Auburn's Falcon Field. -- Michael Echan/MLB.com
