Sunday: Blue Wahoos 4, Biscuits 3 (14)

Ryan LaMarre scored on a Biscuits error in the 14th inning to give the Pensacola Blue Wahoos a 4-3 victory Sunday.

LaMarre led off the 14th with a double to left field and Luis Durango bunted toward first base. Biscuits pitcher Neil Schenk fielded the ball and spun to throw to first, but he threw wildly into right field, allowing LaMarre to score.

The game marked just the fifth time in Biscuits history that they've had a game reach the 14th inning. The most recent was a 14-inning home loss to Mobile in July 2012.

It took 4 hours, 56 minutes and was the longest game -- time-wise -- in franchise history. The previous high was a 4-hour, 50-minute game with the Chattanooga Lookouts in June 2009 that also lasted 14 innings and ended at 12:53 a.m.

On Sunday, the Biscuits rallied from a 3-0 deficit. The Wahoos scored three runs in four innings off Montgomery starter Jake Floethe. Todd Glaesmann hit a two-run single in the fifth inning, while Robby Price doubled and scored on a wild pitch in the seventh.
