Cedar Rapids rallied from a nine-run deficit twice, putting together a one-for-the-ages seventh inning of 14 runs, coming right after Roeder’s birthday was announced to the crowd. They say one of baseball’s best qualities is the ability to see something on a particular day that you’ve never seen before.

May we present Exhibit A.

“This is a game a lot of us are going to remember for a long time,” said outfielder Kevin Bass.

“That was unbelievable,” said Manager Bill Mosiello.

A whopping 20 men came to the plate in a half-inning that lasted 40 minutes. Jon Karcich led it all off with a single, slicing an opposite-field home run down the right-field line in his second at-bat to put the Kernels up, 12-11.

He actually batted a third time, walking. Jose Jimenez also got three ABs in, making two of the three outs.

It took a diving stop of a hard grounder to shortstop off his bat with the bases loaded to finally end the carnage.
