Capahas capture extra-inning magic again with 1-0 win in 14th

(KFVS) -

Thirteen innings were not enough for the Plaza Tire Capahas, so they decided on 14 Monday afternoon. The Capahas beat the Kansas Cannons 1-0 in a 14-inning marathon at the NBC World Series in Wichita, Kan., improving to 2-0 in the 32-team tournament. 

The Capahas won their opening game 5-4 in 13 innings on Saturday night, having now played 27 innings in their first two games combined.

The Caps got a brilliant pitching performance from South Pemiscot High School alum Tyler Thompson, who threw 12 shutout innings while striking out 16 batters. 

Plaza Tire couldn't get Thompson the win, but it did finally break through in the bottom of the 14th as Adam Conner delivered the game-winning RBI single with two outs.

The Capahas next play the San Diego Force on Tuesday.
