This feat would later be accomplished by the Oakland Athletics who had games of 21 and 20 innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers who played two inning games, against the Houston Astros on June 3 a game which they lost 5—4 and the Montreal Expos on August One day later, the teams again went into extras, playing a inning game. The longest doubleheader in Major League history came on May 31, The San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 5—3 in nine innings in the day's first game at Shea Stadium , and then won the nightcap 8—6 after 23 innings despite a rare triple play turned by the Mets in the 14th.
The two games lasted a combined nine hours, 52 minutes. The Mets' Ed Kranepool played in all 32 innings of the two games; Kranepool had been called up to the team that day after having played in both games of a doubleheader the day before for their Triple-A farm club in Buffalo. The five-hour, minute game was the longest Opening Day game in Major League history. This was the second time in Major League history that two games of 18 innings or more were played on same day;  the first was August 15, On September 24, , the Arizona Diamondbacks set a major league record by playing their 77th extra inning of the season when their game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park went into the 11th inning.
On August 10, , at a. That same day the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Detroit Tigers 6—5 in a inning game of their own, Both teams used all their available bench reserves as well as their entire available bullpen, Toronto even used starting pitcher Marcus Stroman as a pinch runner at one point. Tigers starter Rick Porcello would be credited with the loss after coming into the game in the 18th inning.
Toronto starter R. Dickey had begun warming up in the bullpen in the top of the 19th and likely would have come on in relief had the game gone to 20 innings. The game was the then longest in franchise history for Toronto. It is now tied with another inning game, a 2—1 loss to the Cleveland Indians on July 1, The game began at p. The game also included a minute delay due to a brief power outage. It was the longest game between the two teams since the inning, 4—3 Yankees win on August 29, The length of the game prompted a Twitter joke during the game by Yankees' media personality Mark Feinsand at a.
He's now Both teams combined had at-bats, 33 hits and 21 strikeouts. This would be the second longest game in Tampa Bay Rays history. On May 4, , the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the New York Mets with a walk-off single by Ryan Braun , in an inning, 5-hour-andminute game, the longest game played at Miller Park in the stadium's history. On June 18, , the Minnesota Twins defeated the Boston Red Sox with a walk-off single by Max Kepler , in a inning, 5-hour-andminute game, the longest game played at Target Field in the stadium's history.
The longest postseason game by innings in MLB history is 18 innings, which has happened three times. The first inning contest was played between the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros on October 9, In Game 4 of a National League Division Series in Houston , the Braves who were trailing the series 2—1 and facing elimination took a 6—1 lead into the 8th inning. A grand slam by Lance Berkman in the bottom of the 8th brought the score to 6—5, and with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Brad Ausmus homered to tie the game and send it to extra innings.
The score remained deadlocked at 6—6 until the 18th, when the Astros' Chris Burke who entered the game in the 9th inning as a pinch runner hit a walk-off home run to left to win it, sending Houston to the NLCS. Roger Clemens , who was brought in to pinch-hit in the 15th and pitched the last three innings in relief, was credited as the winning pitcher in the 5-hour, minute contest. Adam LaRoche and Tim Hudson played in both of the first two inning games.
This one as Atlanta Braves and the second one as opposing sides of one another with Hudson pitching in both games as the visiting team's starting pitcher. It is the longest winner in a potential clinching game in baseball history.
The game ended just after midnight on October 5, and lasted 6 hours 23 minutes. The Nationals had been leading 1—0 with two out in the ninth inning, with starter Jordan Zimmermann one out away from a complete-game shutout. Posey was thrown out at the plate trying to score the second San Francisco run on Sandoval's double. After Sergio Romo retired the Nationals in order in the bottom half, the game went into extra innings. There was no further scoring until Giants first baseman Brandon Belt led off the top of the 18th inning with a home run.
Hunter Strickland , a September call-up, recorded the save. The third and most recent inning game was Game 3 of the World Series. The game remained deadlocked at 1 until the 13th inning when Brock Holt scored on a throwing error by Dodgers reliever Scott Alexander. The Dodgers subsequently tied it again at 2 in the bottom of the inning, when Max Muncy scored on a throwing error by Red Sox second baseman Ian Kinsler who had entered the game in the 10th inning as a pinch runner.
The score remained 2—2 until the bottom of the 18th, when Muncy who had missed a walk off ome run in the 15th inning by mere inches hit a walk-off solo home run off of Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi who was in his 7th inning of relief. The winning pitcher for the Dodgers was Alex Wood. With a duration of 7 hours and 20 minutes, this was also the longest postseason game by time in MLB history. The National League Championship Series was notable for its two climactic extra-inning games.
After the Houston Astros and the New York Mets split the first four games of the series, the Mets won Game 5 in 12 innings and Game 6 in 16 innings to claim the pennant. The American League Championship Series between the Boston Red Sox and the California Angels featured a dramatic game where the Angels were leading 3 games to 1 and leading 5—4 in game 5, one strike away from the first ever pennant in franchise history, only for Red Sox's Dave Henderson hit a two-run home run off Angels closer Donnie Moore in the top of the ninth inning to give the Red Sox the lead.
The Angels tied it in the bottom half but in the top of the 11th, Henderson's sac fly off Moore proved to be the winning margin and the Angels lost the game. The series returned to Boston and the Angels were outscored a combined 18—5 in games 6 and 7 to lose the pennant. The Red Sox scored 2 runs in the top of the 10th inning to take a 5—3 lead and then got two quick outs with no one on base in the bottom of the 10th. With the Red Sox one out away from their first world championship in 68 years, reliever Calvin Schiraldi gave up three straight singles to cut the lead to one run with runners on first and third.
Red Sox manager John McNamara replaced Schiraldi with Bob Stanley, who then threw a two-strike wild pitch to Mookie Wilson to allow the tying run to score and move the other runner to second base. The wild pitch was particularly notable in that it completely turned the tables on the Red Sox from what they had done while facing the Angels weeks earlier, as they themselves had now blown a situation in which they were one strike away from winning the series.
The ball got over his head for a two-run triple. It was the biggest hit by a road team in baseball history. True, his throw from left field was slightly off-line and not particularly strong; letting Sid Bream score from second base was not only devastating but humiliating. Somehow, Bonds is remembered more than starter Doug Drabek, who came into the ninth with a lead and allowed a leadoff double and then a walk before he was pulled.
Bonds is remembered more than closer Stan Belinda, who inherited a bases-loaded, no-outs situation and almost pulled it out, sandwiching a pair of outs around a walk before surrendering the fateful hit. Most egregiously, Bonds is remembered more than second baseman Jose Lind, who booted a routine ground ball with a man on second and no one out, allowing Cabrera to bat in the first place. A play this famous needs little embellishment. Among other things, this home run is probably the reason Mazeroski is in the Hall of Fame. Yes, that Tony Womack. The one who had a career line of.
The one who played 13 years in the majors and managed only 2.

Mark Grace had started the rally with a leadoff single, and then Mariano Rivera threw the ball away on a sacrifice bunt attempt, putting men on first and second with none out. Rivera partially redeemed himself when the next hitter bunted and Rivera got the lead runner at third base, bringing up the light-hitting Womack. The Yankees were still favored to win. Then Womack somehow kept his hands back on an inside cutter and pulled it down the right-field line. The game was not only tied — the winning run was on third base with just one out.
Rivera then hit Craig Counsell with a pitch to load the bases, and with the infield drawn in, Luis Gonzalez was able to fist a pitch into short left field to end the series. The best reliever ever, the best postseason pitcher ever, against a really bad hitter.

And the hitter won. But down three runs with six outs to go, Pittsburgh rallied. Gino Cimoli and Bill Virdon singled to lead off the bottom of the eighth, and Dick Groat singled to make it A sacrifice bunt was followed by a shallow fly ball, and then, with two outs, Roberto Clemente beat out an infield single while driving home Virdon to make it This is about as big as a hit can be without being a walk-off: turning a deficit into a lead with two outs in the eighth inning.
The Pirates went from being underdogs to having the game in hand.

All of which set the stage for Mazeroski, not Smith, to be remembered forever. Mazeroski got the glory. Smith, however, had the biggest hit of the game, the series, and — to this point, at least — all time. Baseball has seen walk-off home runs with a team down to its final out Kirk Gibson. It has seen walk-off home runs in Game 7 of a World Series Bill Mazeroski , and to win a championship after the home team had been losing Joe Carter. It has seen a go-ahead home run in a Game 7 with the home team losing and down to its final out … of the eighth inning Hal Smith.
But the sport has yet to put all of those elements together. We have yet to see a World Series Game 7 won on a walk-off hit in the bottom of the ninth with the home team losing. Home teams have come back in the bottom of the ninth inning or later in a Game 7; they did so in , , and But each time, the game-tying and game-winning hits were separate events. But not only was it the right move to hold Gordon at third base, it opened the door for something even more dramatic.

Salvador Perez batted representing both the final out of the season and the potential championship-winning run. Not only has no one ever come through with a walk-off hit with his team losing in Game 7, Perez was only the fourth player in history to even bat with his team down to its final out but with the ability to win the series with one swing. Baseball has given us so many signature moments over the years.
