TCU Wins Second Longest Game in NCAA Tournament History

TCU Wins Second Longest Game in NCAA Tournament History

Thinkstock(FORT WORTH, Texas) -- For the second straight night, the TCU Horned Frogs won an extra inning game in the NCAA Regionals. However, this one was twice as long as the previous contest. TCU knocked off Sam Houston State in 22 innings just one day after walking off against Siena in 11 innings on Friday.

A combined 594 pitches were thrown by 13 different pitchers in the game. It is just the second longest game in NCAA Baseball Tournament history behind Texas' 3-2 win over Boston College in 25 innings back in 2009. It is also tied for the third-longest game overall in Division I history.

Boomer White played the hero once again for the Horned Frogs, driving in a run in the top of the 22nd inning to give TCU a 3-2 win. That came one game after hitting a walkoff RBI single in the 11th to defeat the Saints. 

The Bearkats thought they had a walk-off win of their own in the 21st inning when Luke Plucheck's slide broke up a double-play that scored a run. However, Plucheck was called for interference and the inning came to a close. That opened the door for TCU as Keaton Jones walked to begin the 22nd and eventually scored three batters later.

TCU (44-15) is the No. 7 seed in the national tournament and can win their fourth regional title in six years with another win. Sam Houston State (42-18) will take on Siena in an elimination game on Sunday, the winner will face the Horned Frogs later in the day.

Duke Wins Second Straight Men’s Lacrosse Title

Duke Wins Second Straight Men’s Lacrosse Title

Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE, Md.) -- The Duke men's lacrosse team captured its second consecutive national championship on Monday, holding off Notre Dame, 11-9, at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. It was the third national title in the last five seasons for the Blue Devils.

The top-seed in the tournament, Duke held the Fighting Irish scoreless in the first period and led 5-1 at halftime. Kyle Keenan added another goal 17 seconds into the third to make it a five-goal lead before Notre Dame finally got back on the board.

Two more goals from the Blue Devils made it a 7-2 contest and seemingly put the game out of reach. However, the Irish rallied to score six of the next eight goals and trailed 9-8 with five minutes to play in regulation. Keenan notched his second goal of the game to give Duke a little breathing room but Sergio Perkovic scored for Notre Dame with 49 seconds left, again making it a one-goal game. 

Duke won the ensuing face-off and Jordan Wolff eventually sealed it with just 23 seconds left, scoring on an empty net. Perkovic had five goals for the Irish while four Blue Devils each scored a pair of goals.

It was a very special Memorial Day for redshirt senior Casey Carroll. The final member of the 2006 Duke lacrosse team, which was forced to give up a season due to sexual assault charges that later were proven false, Carroll graduated in 2007 and enlisted in the United States Army. He was in Afghanistan watching when the Blue Devils won their first national championship in 2010.

After serving four tours of duty as an Army Ranger, the 29-year old enrolled in Duke's graduated program and rejoined the lacrosse team. He was granted an extra year of eligibility due to the season he was forced to give up and later given a medical redshirt when he tore his ACL, missing last year's title run.

"It's hard to deny that this is a pretty incredible one, for sure," said Carroll after the win. "I'm so grateful for the men and women who've made the ultimate sacrifice, to my family who have supported me in this crazy adventure. For my coaches and teammates, I was just riding their coattails all season."
