Another long day in the minors and a contentious one too
by Bob Timmermann
On Sunday, Lakewood beat Hagerstown, 8-7 in 22 innings, the longest game in the history of the South Atlantic (Sally) League. The game started on April 26 and was suspended after 17 innings because of a curfew.
Meanwhile in the Southern League, Jacksonville defeated Birmingham 11-5 in a forfeit. Birmingham manager Chris Cron pulled his team off the field in eighth inning after the benches emptied for the third time in the game.
