Currently, the Mets and the Cardinals are in the bottom of the fifteenth inning at Busch Stadium. The score is tied at zero. It began at the same time our game in Cleveland did.

You can hear Mike Shannon and John Rooney's call of the game on XM 186.

Here is the KSDK-TV webcam (http://www.ksdk.com/weather/conditions/webcams/1010.aspx) focused on Busch Stadium. Lots of red seats. Many of the fans are probably watching the game at Shannon's where the Budweiser is still flowing.

Now pitching for the Cardinals: Joe Mather.

That's one reason why you shouldn't pitch to Pujols.

The American League used to have a curfew that prohibited any inning beginning after 1 a.m. They don't have it anymore.

I don't know when it was put in place or why it was put in place, but it affected the White Sox a few times in the early 1970s. At least twice That 1973 game, of course, ended up with being completed with Wilbur Wood pitching six innings of the suspended game to get a win on a Dick Allen home run before he shut out the Indians in the regularly scheduled game. In 1972, the White Sox had a couple of curfew games against the A's.

And, of course, there was the 25-inning game that ended with a Harold Baines home run the next day. That was in the 1980s.

Eddie Stankey may have been responsible for a "curfew" being implimented (and with good reason...) Some of the more historic "long" Sox games:

May 9, 1984- Harold Baines ends the longest game, inning wise, in American League history blasting a home run in the 25th inning to give the Sox a 7 - 6 win over Milwaukee. The 8:06 length of the game set a Major League record. Tom Seaver got the win in relief in the marathon contest which started on May 8th and was suspended, then came back and won the regularly scheduled game later that same evening when the Sox won 5 - 4. For the night Seaver threw 9 1/3 rd innings allowing only four hits!


May 24, 1929 - In one of the greatest pitching performances in the history of MLB, Sox starter Ted Lyons throws all 21 innings in a heartbreaking 6 - 5 loss to the Tigers. He allowed 24 hits in the 21 innings. Only two other hurlers had ever matched Lyons mark and no one has ever bettered it.


May 28, 1973 - A night Wilbur Wood will never forget. Two days earlier the game between Cleveland and the White Sox was suspended by curfew tied at two after 16 innings. Rain washed out action on the 27th so when the suspended game was resumed on the 28th, it was Wood’s turn to pitch. He went out and threw five innings before the Sox would win it 6 - 3 in 21 innings. Thirty minutes later Wood went out and started the regularly scheduled game. He would toss a complete game, four hitter, winning 4 - 0. Two wins in one evening! His line for the night, 14 innings pitched one run, six hits, nine strikeouts, two wins. Wilbur was now 13 - 3 on the season and it wasn’t even June 1st!

June 4, 1959 - 1959 was a year for marathon games for the White Sox. This was the first one that went at least 17 innings, and all took place against Baltimore. In this game Earl Torgeson’s solo home run in the last of the 17th, was the difference in the Sox 6 - 5 win. Bob Shaw pitched five relief innings to get the victory.


June 12, 1967 - The Sox play the longest game, that they lose, in their history when they drop a 6 - 5 decision to the Senators in Washington. The game goes 22 innings. Both teams scored a run in the 10th then didn’t score again until the Nats Paul Casanova drove home the winner in the last of the 22nd. Johnny Buzhardt tossed eight innings in relief before giving up the run that cost him the game. Walt Williams had ten at bats! The night game took 6:38 minutes. Both teams went the entire game without an error which is the A.L. record. The contest was played in temperatures around 90 degrees which prompted an angry Eddie Stanky afterwards to demand implementation of a league curfew.

July 12, 1951 - Sox starter Saul Rogovin throws 16 innings against the Red Sox in the second game of a double header at Comiskey Park. He strikes out fourteen but Boston wins 5 - 4 in seventeen.

July 25, 1959 - Marathon game #2 of the 1959 season took place again against the Orioles and again at Comiskey Park. This one was another 17 inning affair that saw the Sox tie the game in the 9th and win it in the 17th thanks to Harry “Suitcase” Simpson’s single, scoring Sammy Esposito. The final was 3 - 2. Bob Shaw started and went eleven innings, Omar “Turk” Lown went six innings and got the win.

August 6, 1959 - The third and final marathon game of the 1959 season. The Sox battled the Orioles in Baltimore and played for 18 innings before curfew stopped the night game tied at one all. The game lasted only four hours. The most significant item to come out of it...the incredible performance by the Sox starter Billy Pierce. Pierce pitches sixteen innings! Let me repeat that...sixteen innings allowing one run on eleven hits.

August 11, 1972- It was one of the longest games in Sox history and was the start of a four game series that may have been the best in the decade. The Sox went to Oakland fighting the A’s for first place in the division, and the day before, this game was called by curfew with the score tied at three after 17 innings. It was picked up on this day and went another two innings before Joe Rudi ended matters with a two run home run. In the regularly slated game, Cub castoff Dave Lemonds and Cy Acosta outdueled Catfish Hunter allowing two hits in a 1 - 0 win. The Sox and A’s would split the final two games of this series.

September 13, 1967 - In one of the longest games in franchise history and in the middle of a four team pennant race, the Sox shut out Cleveland 1 - 0 in seventeen innings! (Now that’s pitching!) The game lasted over four and a half hours and was finally finished when Rocky Colavito singled to right driving home Buddy Bradford. One other note on this game. Sox starter Gary Peters allowed one hit in eleven innings, he also walked ten! (I wonder what his pitch count was!)

September 14, 1952 - In a seventeen inning game in Chicago, Sox pitcher Saul Rogovin strikes out 14 Red Sox. But it’s Luis Aloma who gets the win as the White Sox win 4 - 3.

Some cities actually had laws that prohibited sporting events from continuing past a certain hour due to noise issues with neighborhood residents.

While very long, this was one of the most memorable games I've ever attended. The 14th inning stretch was humorous, as were the signs around the ballpark that said things like, "Send food." It's not every day a baseball fan can say he/she has attended a 19-inning ballgame!

I was there as well. I'll never forget the strange sight of Jon Garland warming up in the 16th or the hilarity of Jason Varitek and Trot Nixon joining forces to go 0-for-17 with a lone walk between them. Good times on a scalding hot Sunday afternoon.
