The Tri-City Dust Devils liked to run, play very long games, and put up football-like scores this season.

In our second of three parts taking a look at highlights from the Dust Devils 2014 season,  they broke some records, and were part of one of the highest scoring games in league history. Thanks to Dust Devils announcer Chris King for compiling these incredible stats!

*Franchise Stolen Base record:  For for the 2nd season in a row, the Dust Devils showed speed on the basepaths.  After swiping 119 stolen bases in 2013, they smashed the team record this year with 142!

*Marathon Madness:  On August 13th, the Devils engaged in one of the longest games in Dust Devils and league history at GESA Stadium, a 14-inning affair with Spokane.   After starting at 7:15pm, the game didn't end until two minutes before 1am the NEXT DAY!   The game lasted 5 hours and 43 minutes before Tri-City won on a two-RBI single.  The game would put the Devils in 1st. place in the Northern Division, although they wound up just missing the playoffs.

*Predicted Triple Play Comes to Fruition:   July 1st, the first triple play at GESA Stadium in 9 years happened when the Devils were taking on Boise.   In the 4th inning,  the Devils walked the first two batters, before the infield turned the 5-4-3- triple killing.   3rd baseman Shane Hoelscher reportedly predicted it would happen when the team huddled for a conference at the mound after the first two walks.

*Football Comes Early in Spokane:  August 18th, the Dust Devils bats came to life in Spokane, as they pounded out 21 runs in a big win over the Indians.  The game, which ended with a score of 21-12 in favor of Tri-City, also saw Dust Devil Miguel Dilone drive in 8 runs, one shy of tying the all-time Northwest League record.  Nobody had scored that many runs in a game since the Everett AquaSox did it back in 2009.

Coming later this week, part 3 of our series, including another league-leading catagory for the Dust Devils.
