19 Innings Newsbeat

Wednesday, September 06, 2017

Red Sox score marathon walk-off win in 19 innings

Once the adrenaline rush from putting together a ninth-inning rally to force extra innings eventually wore off, and the ninth inning turned into the 11th, then the 13th, then the 15th, then the 17th, and all the zeroes on the scoreboard started to blend together, the Sox’s stalemate with the Blue Jays became its own surreal mental and physical challenge.

Physically, there wasn’t a body on the field that wasn’t feeling the drain of a game that stretched long past midnight.
...
But in order to outlast the Blue Jays stare down that ultimately lasted 19 innings (the second longest game in the history of Fenway Park) and six hours (the longest game in the majors this season) and come away with a 3-2 victory, the Sox had to stay dialed in at each moment, because each one was critical.
