Minor leaguers roundup: Stetter pitches part of 24-inning loss

Relatively speaking, former Indiana State pitcher Mitch Stetter played a “small” role as his Nashville Sounds finished on the short end of a 5-4 loss to the visiting New Orleans Zephyrs as the teams completed a Pacific Coast League record-tying 24-inning marathon on May 6.

Stetter pitched three scoreless innings — innings 14 through 16 — for the Sounds. The game-deciding run was the first scored by either team in 15 innings as both teams remained scoreless from innings 10 to 23.

The Sounds and Zephyrs completed the final six innings of the contest on the second day after playing to a 4-4 tie through 18 innings on the night before when the game was halted due to a curfew rule.

The lengthy affair, lasting a mere eight hours and seven minutes, was the longest in both teams’ histories. The 24 innings matched the existing PCL mark originally set on June 8, 1909 in a game between San Francisco and Oakland and “later” equaled on Sept. 10, 1911 in a game between Sacramento and Portland.

Several other PCL records tied or broken in the contest:

n Broken — Most at bats one team (Nashville with 81; previous mark 64) at-bats both teams (166; previous mark 109), most pitchers used by both teams in a single game (17; previous mark 14), the Sounds’ batting strikeouts (29, previous record 20), most combined strikeouts in a PCL game by both teams (48, previous mark 29), hits allowed by Nashville (22)

n Tied — Used 40 combined players in the game, matching the existing PCL mark (set in 1947), Nashville used nine different pitchers in the game (including shortstop Chris Barnwell) to match the single-game mark for one club (set in 1964).

Individual records set were Nashville first baseman Brad Nelson striking out seven times to establish a new Sounds single-game and PCL single-game record. Barnwell's 11 at-bats in the contest set a new Sounds single-game record.
