On this day in 2008, they played 22 innings but the Rockies beat the Padres, 2-1. This is like playing one game and a second game with extra innings.  It was the longest Major League game since August 31, 1993.

The box score shows that Willie Taveras was 3 for 10…..everybody else did not do much for their batting average. (Todd Helton was 1 for 9!)

The pitching was great. Peavy threw 8 scoreless innings. The bullpens were almost perfect for both teams.

Moral of the story: You can’t run out the clock in baseball or do penalty kicks like soccer. You have to make the last out! In this case, it was not 27 but 66 outs!
