This is the longest Sox game, innings-wise since May 1, 1991 at Milwaukee which also went 19 innings. The Brewers beat the Sox 10-9.

That day the Sox blew leads of 5 and 3 runs in losing.

One other note that made this day memorable...Dan Roan of WGN-TV sports went up to cover the game and couldn't get back to the studio in time to do his '9 O'Clock' sports. He did his show pulled over off the interstate on the way back to Chicago! (He was with a remote production truck which made this possible.) It was just him standing on the side of the road with blackness in the background except for a light shining towards him.

I'll bet you he remembers that game!
