Extra Innings Newsbeat

Friday, August 24, 2018

The Giants have played the most extra-inning games of any team this year

Where’s the Croix de Candlestick when we need it the most?

If this season feels a lot more tedious than last season, despite the team actually faring better in terms of wins, one of the reasons why may be because it has been very, very long. Not just in the sense of it being mid-August of a losing season, but in terms of actual length of games.

As of Thursday morning, the Giants have the most extra-inning games of any team in baseball this year with 17 games that included free baseball. If there were even such a thing. The next closest team is the Oakland A’s who have 16 and the next closest in the National League are the Mets, to the surprise of no one, with 15.

The surprising news is that the Giants are not actually .500 in these games (or as close as you can get with an odd number)! They are 10-7, which is good! Comparatively, the A’s are 11-5 and the Mets are 6-9.

  Beats: extra innings, giants

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Many Twins players embrace extra-innings rules changes, but not what’s happening in the minors

“Doesn’t seem fair,” said Duffey, the Twins righthander who is currently back at Class AAA. “Doesn’t seem like baseball.”

That’s a common complaint as minor league baseball implements the experimental rules, designed to address what some consider a scourge and others view as a blessing: extra innings.

Interesting to see some feedback on the recent changes.
