MuckDogs Marathon Will Have To Wait

No matter how much you love baseball, at some point enough is enough. The Batavia MuckDogs and Auburn Doubledays played 20 innings and failed to unlock a 5-5 tie. The game will have to wait a month before it's resumed and hopefully, finished.

In the New York-Penn League game at Auburn, the Muckdogs and Doubledays called it a night in the top of the 21st with the game tied 5-5.

Batavia entered the bottom of the ninth with a 5-3 lead, but Auburn came back with two runs of their own. Jordan Szabo prevented the winning run from scoring when he gunned down Auburn's Matt Cooksey, who was attempting to score on a base hit to right.

Szabo and teammate John Hardy both were 3-for-8.

Each team used seven pitchers over the course of the game, with Batavia's Kevin Shepard lasting the longest. The southpaw tossed five scoreless innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out six.

The game will resume at 5:05 p.m. on August 14 at Auburn's Falcon Field.
