This was the longest game I have ever been around and I was there for every single pitch and had the good fortune to call it all on the radio at NewBridge Bank Park….I had heard of games like this one, but had never been right in the middle of it….

Greensboro Grasshoppers 5
West Virginia Power 4
(19 Innings)
WP:Chris Shaffer(4-0)
LP:Kevin Mort(0-1)

Game winning RBI Christian Yelich and Game winning run scored by Noah Perio……What a night by West Virginia second baseman Kevin Mort who took over on the mound for the Power and went 5 1/3 innings in relief…I would say that Yelich(with a game-tying two run homer in the 9th and then the game-winning RBI in the 19th) for the Hoppers and Mort for WVA were the players of the game…..
