Snippets from 14-inning marathon

Mimicking a post from the June 12, 2009, game where the Biscuits beat Chattanooga 5-4 in 14 innings, here's some tidbits from Monday's 8-7, 14-inning loss to Mobile ...

r There were 448 pitches thrown for 280 strikes. Mobile had 205 pitches for 120 strikes, while Montgomery heaved 243 for 160.

r The teams combined for 16 runners left on base. By comparison, the Biscuits stranded 17 in the June 2009 game.

r Mobile catcher Rossmel Perez gets the Ironman award. He caught all 14 innings. Umpire Jonathan Bailey gets one, too.

r The BayBears made 60 plate appearances compared to 55 for the Biscuits.

r Bobby Borchering gets the average-killer with an 0-for-7 night that included four strikeouts. Just up from high-Class A Visalia, Borchering is hitting .106, down from a pregame .125.

r We estimated about 50 people left in the ballpark at the end. That's half of the June 2009 game, which was on a Friday.

r The Biscuits (once again) did not sing the 14th-Inning Stretch.
