View Full Version : Two games going late

I don't know how many people are paying attention, but there are currently two games in the 15th inning or later. The Cubs and Astros are going to the 18th in Houston, while the Rockies and D'backs are going to the 15th in Colorado. It's rare to even see one game go 15 innings, much less two in the same day.

Ramirez just doubled to lead off the 18th for the Cubs.

The Cubs just took an 8-6 lead after Murton's 2-run single.

2 run single by Murton. Flubs could pull it out.

The longest game in Rockies history(by innings and time) is going on started at 7:05 and right now its 1:05! I cant imagine being at game for 6 hours and the score is 1-1!!

Even though I'm posting this about an hour after the game ended, the D'Backs won 2-1. They mentioned on Sportscenter that this is the first time in MLB history that two games went at least 18 innings on the same day (well they began on the same day anyway). In baseball, you always have the chance on any given day to see something you've never seen before. :smile:

that was the first time 2 games went 18 innings in one day.

Cubs-Stros have a getaway day game today. They'll be tired.
