Remembering the Angels 30-inning, two day sweep of the Mariners

Over the course of two days in 1982, the Angels beat the Seattle Mariners twice in thirty innings and over eight hours of baseball.

On a Tuesday night in April, Halos pitcher Geoff Zahn started against Jim Beattie in a game that Zahn took a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning. As patrons at The Big A readied their belongings to leave once the final three outs were recorded, little did they know the game was just getting started. Following a lead-off single, Don Aase came in for relief of Zahn and surrendered a game-tying double to send the game into extra innings.
