The outcome isn't ideal, but the memories will last a lifetime. Arcadia dropped one of the wildest college baseball games in recent memory on Tuesday, falling to No. 13 Denison in ten frames, 25-23. 

Yes, 25-23. 

The game spanned two days because of a weather delay and lasted nearly six hours. The two clubs combined for 47 hits, including 11 homers, and used 17 pitchers. 

Anthony Bruno finished 4-for-7 with a pair of homers and six RBIs for the Knights while Ryan Smollen and Alex Madera chipped in with four RBIs each. 

Smollen's inside the park grand-slam in the seventh gave the Knights a two-run lead, but Denison evened the contest in eighth to force extras. 

The Big Red then pushed two runs across in the 10th via a single and an error to put the game out of reach. 

Nadell Booker took the loss, surrendering two runs over two innings. 

The Knights then lost to Wooster later in the day, falling 5-1. 

Bruno remained hot, collecting a double while driving in Arcadia's lone run. He's hitting .366 on the season and leads the club with 18 RBIs. 

Arcadia will wrap up their Florida trip on Thursday with a contest against North Central College.
13 stars
