A nine inning game can be pretty long. Now double it. Now add an extra inning.
That's what happened during Tuesday's game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Arizona Diamondbacks. The teams battled it out 2-2 until the man who tied it in the 9th put the D-backs ahead in the 19th. Ildemaro Vargas was the man who won it for Arizona.
The bigger story from the game was how there were plenty of records that were either set or tied during the game.
- The teams combined for a record tying 48 strikeouts
- Longest game at Chase Field at 6 hours and 53 minutes
- Arizona played 27 players in the game, most in a game in franchise history
- First time a game went into or past the 17th inning at Chase Field
For the fans who went to the game, Arizona had a special message to them on Twitter.
