TUCSON, Ariz.- After finding conflicting reports as to the most innings played in a game in school history, the box score from a 1973 game between Arizona and Chapman was unearthed in the UA archives and it has been revealed that Wildcats' Friday night/Saturday morning, 18-inning game against No.2 Stanford is the second longest in the school history.

Arizona's 1973 game against Chapman went 19 innings and was played in 4:40. UA won the contest in the bottom of the 19th, 3-2. John Roslund picked up the win on the mound for the Wildcats with 10 innings of two hit relief. Left fielder Jim Fillipelli established the school record for at bats in the game with nine. The Wildcats sent 66 hitters to the plate in the contest, which is also a school record.

Friday's 5-4 loss to the Cardinal, which concluded early Saturday morning, remains the longest game in school history time-wise at 5:19. Redshirt Freshman Pat Reilly broke the NCAA record for the most putouts in a game with 29 at first base.
