Joe Oeschger

The longest game ever played ends after 26 innings in a 1-1 tie. They would have kept on playing but it was called because of darkness.

Now imagine this. Brooklyn Robin Leon Cadore and Brave Joe Oeschger both go the distance for their respective clubs. Braves’ Charlie Pick establishes the major league record for hitless at-bats in one game as he goes 0-for-11 in the marathon.

Oescheger only gave up 9 hits the entire game, while Cadore allowed 15.

For the rest of the 1920 season Oescheger won 15 games with a 3.46 earned run average.
